Are you using Internet Explorer?

In reply to: Craigs List Replys

And what email software are you using?

Normally, clicking on an email link in a web page should open the 'Default' email software to send the email. Check that you have set your default email software correctly either by;

1] In Internet Explorer goto Tools > Internet Options, or

2] Goto Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Internet Options

Then in Internet options click the Programs tab, and make sure your email software is selected in the section for Email.

This assumes you are using Windows XP or lower. You didn't say.

Ahhh, To Set Default Mail Client...

In reply to: craigs list

Simply open the Control Panel, then the "Internet Options" icon, then click on the "Programs" tab.. In the "Email" line, use the drop down arrow to select Outlook/Outlook Express/Windows Live Mail, etc.. I'm not sure whether Yahoo Mail can be set up in this manner but the other items can..

Hope this helps.
