Unfortunately, You Continue to Give Little Info About It..

Which operating system are you using? XP, Vista, Windows 98? Which Internet Service Provider do you use? And which email client do you use? (Such as Outlook Express? Microsoft Outlook? Something else?)

In the meantime,,,,, In order to designate your default mail client, (you don't install it), open Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" in the upper left, choose "Internet Options", then click on the "Programs" tab.. In the "Internet Programs" section, next to the "Email" line, use the drop down arrow to select your particular email client.. One important note though..Most webmail clients will not be listed there. Generally, you must select one of the items listed in the drop down menu for it to work correctly.

Hope this helps.
