Hello terminus,

I have done as you suggest a number of times but it reverts to "This application is NOT the default E-mail handler"

Friday night I got these problems..? ( my life)

Ok do you have another Email system? If if it's something like IncredImail deny it the default options.)
.............If you're on AOL, then I believe we have problem... I need a little more information, and so do, others who may out of sympathy,...decide to intercede.

Who is your ISP and is it Dialup or Broadband?

Hello ennuye,

My ISP is Lynxnet and it is Dialup

Internet Explorer, Tools/Internet Options, Programs tab.

Set it there and see what happens.

Hello VoG,

In Internet Explorer it is set to Microsoft Outlook and willnot let me alter the setting

What I would be tempted to do, if this can't be resolved easily.
I download IncrediMail, without being made your default mail handler, it'll take all incoming mail anyway.. plus it has other features which you may like notifiers animations etc.

Thanks terminus!

I'll do what you suggest
