    error message keeps popping up

    Dear All,
    I use windows mail on my Vista laptop. Demon mail software does not work.
    Whenever I follow a link to a website on an incoming mail, before the
    browser has had time to open an error message pops up to say that the
    webpage is not available. Then after a couple of seconds the browser opens
    and displays the web page. The error message is linked to win mail, and
    closes when win mail closes.

    Anybody got any bright ideas on how to stop this?

    Do tell?

    Regards
    Alex McF

    Ensure that Windows Mail has all its defaults:
    Open the Default Programs applet, which you can access either from
    the Start menu or via the Control Panel, then click the first item:
    "Set your default programs."
    After a few seconds, a list of programs comes up. Click on Windows Mail.
    If it doesn't respond with "This program has all its defaults" then fix it by
    clicking on the option indicated by the first green arrow.

    Repeat the above for Internet Explorer.

    The only remaining suggestion I have is for you to upgrade to
    Windows Live Mail:
