HELP!

I recently signed up for gmail, and ever since then, every time I try to click on a 'mailto:' link, it automatically sends me off to gmail; the problem is, I don't usually want to use gmail, but I can't find out how to turn off this 'default' setting! If it's any help, my usual e-mail program is Outlook Express.

Worse still, I can't even use gmail, nor access its own support forum, since I have of course forgotten the identification information I used to sign up with, and all my attempts to recover it so far have failed!

Please HELP!

Google Toolbar Nov 4, 2008

You are probably using Google Toolbar.

Go to Settings of Google Toolbar, Options, More, Page Tools and deactivate Send to Gmail.

Thanks a lot, Lutz! Nov 4, 2008

Spot on! I had reset my default mail server in Outlook Express, but couldn't understand why that didn't work; I had no idea that it was also configured under the Google toolbar.

Thanks so much for your timely help!
