    Re: sending out mail on craigslist

    When you click on a link on Craigslist, it opens your default email program.
    In Vista, the default email program is Windows Mail.
    You can setup Windows Mail to access your POP3 or IMAP account, or install
    another email program and make it the default.
    Or, if you prefer using Hotmail or Yahoo webmail, maybe the following links
    may help....

    Do you have a preferred email service provider?
    How do you normally send email?

    Do you get an error message when you try to send or receive? If so,
    right-click on your error message, copy, then paste it into a reply here.
    We can't do much troubleshooting without the complete error message.

    Re: sending out mail on craigslist

    I have a new lap top with Windows Vista also and after 15 years of using the
    internet I have never had a problem sending a simple email via the web
    (Craigslist, real estate search engine, etc.). I am getting the same error.
    I have hotmail and downloaded Windows Live (again) per the Windows website
    and it still gives me the same Pop 3, is not compatible error message when I
    try to respond to an add. What in the world is wrong with this Vista program
    that you can't perform normal, simple web based functions without some kind
    of fix and what is the fix?

    Thank you,

    Susan

    Re: sending out mail on craigslist

    When you click on a link on a website like Craigslist, it is a mailto:
    link, and it should open your default email program.

    If you prefer using Hotmail or Yahoo webmail, maybe the following links
    may help.... (I can't vouch for them)
    http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html
    http://www.pchell.com/support/yahoomail.shtml

    If you wish to use Windows Live Mail (WLM) and your Hotmail email account,
    it's pretty simple.

    Open Windows Live Mail.
    Click on "Tools" - "Accounts" - "Add.."
    Click on "Email account"
    Click on "Next"
    Enter your Hotmail email address and password in the correct boxes...
    Enter your name as you would like it to be shown...
    You won't need to enter any server names or settings..
    Click on "Next"
    Click on "Finish"

    Now make sure that WLM is the default email program...
    Click on the Vista "Start" button - "Default Programs" - "Set your default
    programs".
    highlight "Windows Mail", then click on "Choose defaults for this
    program".
    click on "Select all" to make sure the MAILTO is selected
    click on "Save"

    Now it should work.

    Dave,

    Thank you - the website
    http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html
    was what fixed it for me. At first it didn't seem to make any difference but
    then I restarted and after that I was able to respond to the Craigslist and
    the real estate site. Thanks for your help!
