I go to tools options, then a box comes up with you need to have Administrater or power user privileges in order to set Incredimail as your default e-mail cilent, so how do I do it?
Thanks in advance

To configure IncrediMail as the default email client, simply open IncrediMail, click the 'Tools' menu, select 'Options...' and click the 'Make Default' button.

If the 'Make Default' button is grayed out, yet IncrediMail still does not act as your default email client, then do the following:

Right-click the IncrediMail Tray Icon (the orange envelope), located in the lower right-hand corner (near the computer clock) and select 'Exit'.

Open Outlook Express, click the 'Tools' menu and select 'Options...'.

At this point, the 'Options' dialog opens. Click the 'Make Default' button and close the 'Options...' dialog.

Close Outlook Express and open IncrediMail. In the IncrediMail main window, click the 'Tools' menu and select 'Options...'.

At this point, the 'Options' dialog opens. Click the 'Make Default' button and close the 'Options' dialog.

IncrediMail is now configured as your Windows default email client.

Just done what you said, It still says in the option box Incredimail is NOT your default e-mail client, and it still says Administrater or power user privileges in order to set Incredimail as your default e-mail cilent

In XP and in addition to VOG's input, have you also tried changing things in "Set program Access and Defaults" accessible by clicking Start?

try; run, control panel, taskbar start menu, customise, general tab, against email at the bottom under show on start menu, there is a drop down list, click on that and if incredimail is there select that and see if that works

Just tried the above, no luck, not a big problem just wanted Incredimail as default because it is easy and quicker to send photos from Picasa that way, thanks to you all
