Author Topic: Setting Webmail as default email in Mac OSX  (Read 7889 times)
« on: April 13, 2010, 11:11:40 am »

I use your Webmail as my email program. Whenever I click on an email link in Safari, I am led to the Mail page, asking me to set up a Mail account. I do not want to do this. Can I set Webmail as my default email program? I suspect that Webmail does not reside on my computer, so I don't know if that complicates things or not.

Hello,

To change your default mail program on a Mac OS X, in the Apple Mail program on your computer, click the Mail menu, then click Preferences.  In the General section, you will see "Default email reader" and it will allow you to select what you want to use.

However, it is unfortunately only possible to set mail clients (such as Apple Mail, Mozilla ThunderBird, Outlook, and so on) as your default mail program.  It is not possible to set up the Cruzio webmail interface as your default mail program, since it is accessed through a web browser and not a mail client.  This is true for many other webmail interfaces outside of Cruzio as well.

This is a workaround, though it's kind of awkward...

Instead of clicking on the email link, drag over it to select it, and then copy it.

Now go to your Cruzio webmail, click Compose to start a new message, and paste that email address into the To field.

Here's one to practice with:

Thanks Jessi,

I have been using this workaround, but it doesn't work when something like "click here to contact" is shown, but the actual email address is not displayed. I was hoping to be able to send an email in such a case without ever signing up for a Mail account.

By the way, I was in your One Night Website class Tuesday night. Great job!

Hi Bob,

Of course, I should have thought of that. In that case, right-click (or control-click if you have a one-button mouse) on the email link, and you should see an option to copy the link address. In Firefox on Mac, for instance, the option is called "Copy Email Address." Other programs like Internet Explorer or Safari should have something similar.

I should have mentioned this method in the first place - it's probably easier than the other way.
