how to set up an email client on windows photo viewer

Since windows 7 doesn't come with an email client. If I use gmail, how do I tell the system my email account? Such as on Windows photo viewer", or on web page when I click to send an email.

You download windows live mail, it is part of windows essentials. I have given you the link below on how to do that.

After Windows Live Mail is downloaded, you must go to the website of your email, lets say it is Gmail. On the Gmail site you can find out how to set up your account.

It is real easy . You go to the email client, on the top you will see tools, you click on that and then click on accounts and full in the information, that you obtained from the website. The information includes the port numbers, the name of the account, your password etc. Then you merely write or send email, right from the client. Once the information is filled out and you want to send a web page, you just right click, send to Windows Live Mail and the picture or web page will be attached to an email, ready to be sent.

When you are ready to fill in the information, you come back here with your specific question, and I or another member will be glad to help you.

Thank you so much. I've installed Windows Live Mail ,Photo gallery and Movie Maker. On Mail, I set up an Gmail account. And it does work. But it still show an message said no email client or have to set up an association on Default Program Control Panel. I opened DPCP, don't know which one to set up association. File Type? confused ... How can a file type is associated with email client?

Ok, on default program control panel, I found, it, "set program access and computer default". There are 3 cofigurations, microsoft, non-microsoft, custom. Don't know what's the difference. Anyway I chose custom and on choose a default email program I select windows live mail. And it works. That's it.
