Gmail & Aid4Mail
« on: August 27, 2014, 04:47 PM »
I have an ASUS desktop with Windows 8.1 and I use Gmail. Because I could never get my computer to recognize Gmail as my mailer, as this is essential with programs like Nuance's Dragon and  Copernic Desktop Search, I just   purchased Fooke's Aid4Mail in hopes this would clear up the problem.  No such luck. Is there something special I have to do to get the OS to recognize Gmail as my mail system?

If I'm understanding this correctly, you want the webmail version of gmail to be the default email handler.  This doesn't sound like the easiest thing to do, but try these suggesstions:

another way is to get a pop software for windows, like the Bat or Mailbird or thunderbird, and set that as your default email program with a gmail account.  That seems to be what most people do.
