Default Mail

Hi

I am trying to set Windows Live Mail as default in 7/64 for Word 2007 etc, but it is not listed in control panel/default settings.

Any help please

Thanks,
I have already done this, but WLM is not in the default programs listing, it lists other live programs like photo viewer but no WLM

Have you tried setting it as default in WLM itself?

Go to the top left click down menu, options, mail, then on the general tab at the bottom, make default.

Hi

I cant find this on my WLM page, my top left drop down box is Windows Live & there are no options in there, maybe i'm a bar missing

(Go to the top left click down menu, options, mail, then on the general tab at the bottom, make default.)

I've circled the dropdown I was referring to.

Some people have mistaken Windows Live HOTMAIL as Windows Live MAIL.

Are you one of them ?
