How to Set a Web-based E-mail Service to be Windows Default?

You can set either Gmail or Yahoo Mail to be the browser’s default in Firefox,so when you click a mailto link on a Web page brings you to it.  If you want to send a document from Word  or PDF for instance, the app creates the messagethrough Windows’ default e-mail program .But these options do not cater for the webmail clients, such as Gmail and Yahoo! Mail .Mailing from those sorts of programs is a Windows issue.

This is where the free email attachment manager Affixa  can help you.It  means when you use the "send" buttons in programs like Word,  PDF or Windows Explorer, Affixa can automatically open a browser window, create a blank message in Gmail or Yahoo! Mail and upload the files as attachments.Just tell Windows Explorer, Word, or WinZip that you want to send a file, and Affixa uploads the file and creates a message in the Draft folder of Gmail or Yahoo Mail. It replaces Windows Explorer context menu Mail recipient integration.
