Outlook Express

When I click on a link on Pc from a site and wish to use their email it always uses Outlook Express. Is there a way to be able to set this to go into my Virgin email instead. For instance if I wish to send a photo from My Pictures to someone it will open in Outlook email.

Outlook express is probably set as your default, have a look in tools/internet options/programmes, you may be able to change your mail programme from the dropdown box

How can I change Outlook express to my Virgin email in programmes as suggested

opposite e-mail is a box, click the down arrow on right hand side and hopefully your other e-mail account will show. Click this one to select then apply.

The only other in box is Hotmail not Virgin

See if you can change it in add/remove programmes/set access defaults

If by Virgin email you mean that you access your email via the webmail interface on Virgins website then it's not that easy. The problem is that webmail isn't a "program" but a page on a website.

None of the above options will help you unless you start using an E-mail client on your PC.

E-mail Client? How do I go about installing this as I am not very good with Pc.
