Re: reposting E-mail Question

That isn't a default e-mail setting.  The e-mail program opens links in the default browser.  You can set your browser to use a certain e-mail program if you follow a send mail link on a web page but again, that has nothing to do with what is being complained of. 
 
When a link is followed, the wrong browser opens even though the default browser is the desired one. 
 
This is just the sort of thing System Restore may solve, an odd problem without a known solution.  But if you don't have system restore on or it isn't working properly and you aren't using another reversion program, the best I can suggest is to change your default browser, then change it back to the one you want just in case that solves the problem, you never know.
 
Also, if you don't know about System Restore and problems you may have if you don't know about it, ask here and I'll discuss the matter.

Hi Vicki,
It sounds like you need to check your program defaults,
and make sure that your e-mail client is the default for all e-mail actions.
It's possible that an update to Chrome has changed the settings.

HTH,
Rick
