Windows 7: How do I associate my email programme with HP MediaSmart?

How do I associate my email programme with HP MediaSmart?

Sorry to ask for help again, but I simply cannot find an answer(I have searched the forum) . I recently upgraded my Pavilion dv9700 to Windows 7. It has a built in webcam which I have never used. I've decided I now want to!
Installed HP MediaSmart and the webcam works ok both with picture and sound. I want to send a short video to a cousin in NZ but MediaSmart tells me to associate an email programme. I tried the 'default' but it (hotmail) is not listed. How do I do this?

I want my usual video files to continue opening with WPM if possible. I only want the MediaSmart file associated with Hotmail (or another if this is not possible)


Any advice appreciated

I don't think you can associate it with Hotmail as this is an online service. You can download and install Windows Live Mail and use that with your Hotmail account, and you should also be able to tell the MediaSmart software to use Windows Live Mail as the default email program once it's installed.

If you don't want to install anything new, you can just attach the video file you have made to a new email on the Hotmail website.

Thanks very much indeed CreepinJesus - I appreciate yout time and response. As you suggested I attached it as a file to Hotmail and it worked a treat.

Again thanks.

I would actually suggest doing it this was going forward as well. It gives you a chances to view the video clip first, and then decided if you want to send it or not.

I would recommend this too, as you can see the size of the file before you send it. For emails, anything over 8-10MB (depends on the service) is asking for trouble.

Hello CreepinJesus and DeaconFrost.

I've only posted two questions on this forum and both have been answered within minutes.

Thanks very much - and it's proof that ones never too old to learn.
