I just read the above topic about not finding Yahoo mail as a default mailer. I have gmail, and also can not set it as the default. Is that because gmail is not installed but rather a site I go to?

I would llike to make gmail my default mailer, and have tried to add it in internet options, no luck. Is this even possible?

PS did I do that link correctly? I could not find the topic ID anywhere on the page.

See here >>Making Gmail your default mail application.

You won't actually see it show up in Internet Options but should still work.

Firefox users can use the Email This! Bookmarklet Extension . Once installed, open the Customize Toolbar & drag the Gmail This! icon (or whichever they wish to use) up to the Navigation Toolbar.
