"Gmail" as default program

Have a client that uses Gmail and wants to be able to use her scanning software to send emails through Gmail.  The scanning software is the Brother Control Center 4 and it does accept a default mail program, but is there a way to make it Gmail?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can set Gmail on an email client (Outlook or Outlook Express for example) and use that specific email program as the default scan-to-email program.

You can find instructions for setting up POP3 or IMAP with an email client here:

Thunderbird is a free email application that can be configured as the default (same as Outlook but free).

By the way, I used Thunderbird as the default mail program, but is there a way to make the program only open an outgoing email window without opening my inbox as well?  For example, if I'm only sending a recently scanned document, I don't need the entire program opening as well.
