  • Hi chase321,

     

    Could you please let us know which email program you are using? Is it Microsoft Office Outlook, Windows Live Mail, third party email program or Internet Explorer (IE)?

     

    Also, you can change the default Windows programs by referring to this article: Change which programs Windows uses by default

     

    Regards,

    Linda

  • Windows 7 does not come with a built in E-mail program. You need to install one or use web based mail like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc...

     

    If you previously used Outlook Express with Windows XP then Windows Live Mail is probably the best fit for you. Click on the Start orb and type email, then click on the link that shows up called "Go online to get Windows Live Essentials ".

  • You would get the above prompt if there isn't any email client being install. Adding on other advise, you could install outlook 2007 which is compatible with win 7
