Google mail hogging my email option.

  nick_j007 21:02 10 Sep 2009

Hi all.

On my Samsung NC10 I have and use Mozilla Thunderbird. I have also set it to be my default email client.

However, when clicking on email links Google mail always opens. I want Thunderbird to open.

I expect it's simple...any ideas please?

Thanks in advance.

Also go into IE - Tools/Internet Options/Programs tab and by E-mail: select Mozilla Thunderbird - click Apply and OK.

Many thanks both. I've done as you suggest, and the problem remains.

Any more ideas please?

uninstall google? or check folder options

Will look on my laptop again later thanks.

I do have Chrome installed, and I have just thought as a result of your prompt that it may be a setting in Chrome.

Will update as soon as I know.

Thank you.

Removed Google Chrome from laptop and when clicking on email links google email still tries to load but never fully opens.

There must be a setting somewhere that I am missing?

I have addressed all of the above as suggested so far.

Yours, Confused.

Here I am again and still unresolved :) Due to being busy, but I apprecaitiate the help.

Marg7. When I click on an email link on a web page I have gmail opening in a web browser page, where as I want it to open up in Thunderbird.

I folloowed your link tvm, but I am uncertain as to what to with it.

In TBird - go to Tools - General tab - System Defaults. Check TBird is set there as the defaukt mail handler.
