default email question

I have set my outlook express to the default email but when i go to say craig's list and reply to the address they give it goes straight to gmail which i don't use anymore. i set up a fake account to use and use my outlook express email address to send from the gmail account. Is the address i reply to on there set up on gmail or is there another setting i need to do to have outlook open up. Its a couple of reply to addresses that jump right to gmail just a little confused thanks for any input. I'm using windows7 64 professional.

Windows 7 no longer supports Outlook Express, hasn't since XP. Vista had Windows Mail, now in 7 there is Windows Live Mail which is part of Windows Live Essentials. You can also use Outlook 2k3, 2k7, or 2k10 beta. If you need help installing and setting up Win LIve Mail we're here to help.
