When you’re surfing along in Internet Explorer you might decide to send an email by clicking the little envelope button in the toolbar. Or if you’re in Firefox you might hit Ctrl+M to send one. Either way, you’ll probably get an Outlook Express window. But wait, you use Thunderbird or Incredimail for your email. How can that default be changed?
Whether you use IE or Firefox, you’ll need to go into IE to change the default mail client. You heard me right—you can’t change it in Firefox.
So, open Internet Explorer and go to Tools/Internet Options then click the “Programs” tab.
You’ll see several options listed. Next to “Email” hit the arrow and there will be a list of programs to choose from. Select the one you want then click OK.
Now you can send email from the using the correct program.
