    are my email options limited to outlook express and hotmail ? ie, when i'm in a website and want to send an email, eg, craigslist, and i'm using internet explorer, an outlook express email is automaticallly set-up; i click, tools, internet options, programs, then email: my 2 options seem to be outlook express or hotmail: i would like to make it something else, eg, webmail.broadstripe.net: is it possible ? i can't seem to change the outlook express or hotmail argument in the email option, as stated above ? thanks

    The mail link needs to point to a program on your computer. If you have another email program, like Thunderbird, Eudora, or something else, you can make that your default email program. It doesn't work for web email since that doesn't involve anything installed on your own machine.
