e-mailing photos from MyPictures

Postby dermanh » Mon Aug 02, 2010 10:39 am

My setup is Win 7 and I use IE 8 as my browser, and gmail for email.
When I send a photo from My Pictures to email, it automatically goes to LiveMail. I want it to go to gmail. How do i do that?

You are having problems because GMail is not a program. The default email program must be a program file not a website. Below is a link that shows a method to accomplish what you would like to do with the GMail Notifier utility from Google.

Sorry to report that I failed following the instructions in the artcle. I also followed the procedure of one of the repondents to the article by downloading "gmailbydefault" from <www zedlan.com>, but that also failed.
Is there anything else I can try/

Nothing that I know of but I use Outlook so I don't have the problem. I believe that you could setup WIndows Live Mail to send via gmail. That way when you clicked on you pictures Windows Live Mail would be executed and would accomplish what you want via gmail. Here is a link to an article that shows how to set it up.
