    When I click on email links in web pages I am advised there is no email programme associated with my computer. I have checked on default programmes in tools in IE 11 and the box for use current email programme is checked.
    Is it because I am using gmail. I do not like Windows Live Mail, nor Outlook. Is there anything I can do about this
    I also use some Gandi mail addresses. But I cannot see any place to link a specific email programme by name.

    It is looking for a mail association to a program on your computer, not to web-based mail
