Trying to reduce size of photos to email. When I right click photo and select "send to" and "mail recipient" the resize option comes up ok but it then tries to send it using Windows Live mail which is not the email package i use. I am on Outlook express. My email address is a virginmedia.com one and the windows live mail tries to send out using an old ntlworld address i had.
Outlook express is my default so dont understand why windows live mail should keep popping up when i try to use the "send to" option for pictures or documents.
On windows XP home
Any clues please ?

Probably due to a windows update.
You need to change the associated program in your case windows mail. If your not sure how to do that try a google for changing associated program win xp.

I don't use windows mail but you may be able to removed windows mail via add remove programs as a last resort.
