windows 7 and e-mail problem
« on: October 14, 2011, 11:31:59 pm »
my fairly new desktop has windows 7 and comes with the program windows live mail no longer Outlook for a e-mail program. For the first time I added all my contacts to my desktop. I usually use my laptop for e-mail, but decided today I want to use my desktop for e-mail also.

I set up windows live mail, and got it working with my new cox cable e-mail address, I will be changing to that e-mail address here in my profile shortly.

I went into Hal and added some of my contacts names with there e-mail addresses
exp:
User:  Joe's e-mail address is joe@cox.net
Hal: I have remembered joe's e-mail etc.etc. etc.

all was good till I tried to test Hal opening up the e-mail program and have ready a e-mail for said contact
Example:
user: E-mail joe
Hal: I will start an email for joe@cox.net I will now start an email for joe

above response from Hal was correct, but no e-mail program ever opened :(

Does anyone else have this problem that has windows 7?, If you have windows 7 does your Hals e-mail function work?, and Does anyone know of a way to fix it?

I got it to work  ;D for some reason the only e-mail program that comes with windows 7, is not pre-set up as a default program.

I followed this tutorial here to set windows live mail to be my default e-mail program
