Wrong Email addreslos-dont seem to be able to find - to correct it

  SparkyJack 11:34 AM 01 Feb 12

Using my Web mail account to create and send a missive is fine and my correct address appears in the from section. However if I elect to sent a file from FILE/Send link- option my address comes up completely wrong-. So the task is to locate where that address is and edit or deleie it Any ideas?

.............."So the task is to locate where that address is"......

That address will be in your default e-mail client (Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird etc). Hopefully you'll know which one it is and then you can go in and edit the properties for the e-mail account in that program.

Probably in whatever email program you have installed as ( usually ) send-to's don't pick up on webmail addresses . Try editing the account in Windows Mail or Outlook Express or whatever you have on your PC .

That is the problem - This is a Web mail account

I do not use an E-client all addresses are on the Web server there is no 'onboard' address file

Unless you know otherwise

Assume that when you choose File-Send that you are not using webmail at that time but Windows Explorer or have a list of files open. If so this does not link to webmail (it cannot) but will instead open your default e-mail client and that is where this e-mail address is.

Sparky, when you click the "File" menu and choose "Send link by e-mail", or indeed click any mailto: link on a website or in an e-mail, it will always open your default e-mail client's new-message window.

That's the way it is and there's nothing you can do to make it work with webmail.
