What is default email client or email handler?
When you click on any email address, normally Outlook express opens or Outlook opens, you can simply type the content and send it.
Instead of using outlook express or Outlook or Thunderbird you can have Gmail handle all the emails for you.
To do this you need to install Gmail notifier which can be downloaded here
You can read my previous post which talks about Gmail Notifier and its functions
Right click on the trey icon and click options
You will get a menu as seen below
Click the check box (Use Gmail for internet Mailto: links) to select Gmail as a default email handler for all your email links.

Gmail (Google Mail) offers a small piece of software to notify you that you have a new email. This works great.
You do not need to go to your inbox or open your Gmail Tab to check for a new email.
- Install Gmail Notifier and get the notification as seen below.
- If a new email comes you will see a notification in your system trey which is at the right bottom of your windows PC.
- The blue color mail icon indicates that Gmail notifier is running
- Right click on the gmail notifier to get the below seen options
- When you click ï¿½View Inboxï¿½ Notifier will open the Gmail inbox in your default browser
- You can click ï¿½Check mail nowï¿½ to check any new emails, but you donï¿½t need to do it since Gmail notifier automatically checks for new emails
- If you want to know the recent notification just click ï¿½Tell me Againï¿½, this will show the latest notification again.
- If you want to set up your default browser for checking Gmail, you can click ï¿½Optionsï¿½ This will open a small window as seen below
- You can choose the default browser for viewing Gmail inbox
- Click on the check box if you want to use Gmail as default email handler when you click on any email links
- You can choose the browser you want and click OK to save the options
- During the installation Gmail notifier will ask for the user name and password
The disadvantage is, you can only have only one gmail account configured with the Gmail notifier, so this will not be useful when you want multiple email notification
