Robert Preston :

Hi

Robert Preston :

Why do you want IE to be the primary mail for Picasa?

Robert Preston :

IE is not a mail client

Robert Preston :

It's an internet browser

Customer:

I want to send pictures to my children via email.

Robert Preston :

Ok, well who is your email provider?

Customer:

at &t

Robert Preston :

Ok well you need to configure Outlook or Windows Mail, a seperate program, not IE to email them

Robert Preston :

So set up one of those programs for your AT&T mail

Robert Preston :

and then you can set them to default and use that

Robert Preston :

you cannot use IE

Customer:

onmy last computer I went throught ie.

Robert Preston :

If you're accessing mail through IE, that's webmail

Robert Preston :

Webmail is not an email client though

Customer:

not very helpful.

Robert Preston :

Ok well I'm not sure why you're against using a mail client for email

Robert Preston :

That's why they exist.

Robert Preston :

IE is an internet browser.

Robert Preston :

Well if you'd like to get it setup correctly let me know

Robert Preston :

and I can help you further

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
