Making Gmail your default mail application


You can designate Gmail as your default mailto handler. This means that when you click on any hyperlinked email address, a Gmail compose window will open so you can send a message to that address from Gmail.

To do so in Windows:
1. Download the Gmail Notifier.
2. Right-click the Notifier icon in your system tray, and select Options.
3. Check the box next to Use Gmail for internet mailto: links.
4. Click OK.
If you decide later that you don't want to use Gmail as your default email application, simply uncheck the box.

Go to control panel and find "default programs"
or open IE and click the wheel goto option and then the programs tab and click set programs

then pick set program access and computer defaults. You should be able to over ride outlook there by changing your mail client to gmail connector
