I have had the same exact problem for over 6 months. If you get an answer I
hope it will be posted. Thanks. What I have been doing is coping and pasting
the address on the criags listing to my regular email and trying to reply
that way.

From this thread I gather that Qwest has shortchanged you by setting
you up with a webmail account that has no POP access:
https://forums.qwest.com/qwbb/board/message?board.id=email&message.id=172

You will have to upgrade to Windows Live Mail in order to be able
to use a q.com email address with a desktop email client program.

To upgrade to Windows Live Mail: http://download.live.com/wlmail

What is your preferred email service? Some of them cannot be set as the
default under Vista.

It would be really helpful if you disclosed who your mail provider is
(or the part of your email address after the @ symbol). Otherwise
we're stabbing in the dark here.

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.

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

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/articl...e-Default-Programs-tool-in-Windows-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/articl...e-Default-Programs-tool-in-Windows-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!

Susan
