How can I open my emails that are saved to my documents?
Up until now, this has worked fine.  I can open up any other folder in my documents but when I try to open up my saved emails it does not open.  I must have done something to cause this,but I have no idea what that could be?

Does it not respond or do you get an error when trying to open the message from My Documents? Have you tried right-clicking the item > Open With > Choose Default Program > ensure Microsoft Outlook is the default program for the file?


no it doesn't respond at all.  The default for this email is Incredimail.  I also discovered that I can't open my emai from my task bar without restarting my computer?

Try making incredimail your default email client:

I would recommend switching from Incredimail as it is a potential source of unwanted adware.


I checked and Incredimail is my default email client.  Is there anything on the web that is better than Incredimail whith some or all of the features of Inredimail?

Perfect!!!!!!!!!! Thanks
In regards to replacing Incredimail, what are the features in it that you use, that you would like in an alternative email client?

I have found that Windows Live Mail is a pretty good email client.  Thunderbird is also a good choice and has built-in spam filters.
