    Hi,

    Would it be possible for some kind person to give advice on this
    question from my wife.

    When reading an email using Windows Mail,if the text in the body of that
    email contains an email address,is it possible to double click on that
    address and have Windows Mail open automatically with a blank reply page
    ?
    This operation used to work OK with XP & OE however using Vista &
    Windows Mail it only pops up a message stating that the program is not
    associated.

    Clicking on an email address in a web page using IE8 works fine, it
    opens up a Windows Mail reply page.

    Thanks for any advice,
    Regards,
    Geordie

    Hi,

    The last bit about opening up from a web page is not correct,when an
    attempt is made to carry out this proceedure,a message appears stating
    the following "The default mail client is not set up correctly".

    It isn't possible to have a mail account without a username and =
    password.
    Who is your provider (the part after the @ symbol)? Give them a call.

    My provider is comcast, and has been for several years. The question is why
    would this window appear now?

    One possibility is that Comcast is having problems.

    Are your friend's emails in RichText/HTML format?

    Is "Read all messages in plain-text" enabled?

    Either that, or your antivirus has corrupted the account.

    Are both you and your friend using HTML format rather than plain text =
    format?

    If it downloads the same emails over again, that means it wasn't allowed
    to finish the job last time. The other possibility is a 'stuck' email on =
    the server.
    I suggest you go to webmail and prune the Inbox there so it holds only =
    the=20
    messages you want to download into Windows Mail. Move everything else
    into webmail folders other than Inbox.

    Windows Mail can automatically duplicate a filing system only for IMAP
    accounts. For POP accounts you have to do the job yourself, although
    you can set up message rules to redirect incoming emails into specific=20
    mail folders.
