    Actually this has nothing to do with Chrome. If your want your default email program to be a standalone program like Eudora, you need to set Eudora as your default email program from Windows.

    You can set your Windows default email program from Windows' "Set Program Access and Defaults".

    Once you have used Windows to set Eudora as your default email program, clicking on any mailto: link in Chrome will automatically start Eudora.

    Well this is peculiar indeed - when I use Firefox or Opera or IE, either of those will bring up Eudora. Another strange thing is, when I go to "Set Default Programs" - Eudora doesn't appear in the list. I'll appreciate your furthered instructions. Thanks for the reply!

    Being new to Google Chrome, I'll have to ask you where to I click on mailto link - I'm not seeing that particular icon whatever. On a certain site (can't remember which one it was now) I clicked on the e-mail and something came up but not sure what it was, but it was another e-mailer other than Eudora.

    NOW --- it could have been Thunderbird (not sure though) but not using that, I just uninstalled it, so will have to find a site where I can send an e-mail that brings up my e-mailer - hopefully Eudora.

    Let me know if there is indeed a "mailto" on the toolbar or is that something that one finds on a particular site.

    Ok - just found a site - clicked on the "e-mail us" and sure enough, didn't Eudora pop up. For some strange reason, it must have been Thunderbird that was coming up. I didn't recognize it because even though I had downloaded it at one point to look at it, I never did use it. So that part of the problem seems to have been solved.

    BUT - why does not Eudora show up in the "Set Program Access and Defaults?" Any idea?

    Im sorry, a mailto link is a link that you click on and opens up your email client.
    A link has a property called the href, this tells the browser where to go when you click it. A link that goes to an email addresse starts with mailto:, it looks something like this in code....
    <a href="mailto:someone@yoursite.com">Email Us</a>
    Hope that doesnt confuse you more I just wanted to explain.

    If you find an email link then I hope it works for you, if it doesnt come and say....not sure why chrome would use something other than the default for your OS, but we'll see.

    Oh and as to....
    BUT - why does not Eudora show up in the "Set Program Access and Defaults?" Any idea?
    Im not sure where "Set Program Access and Defaults?" is
    EDIT: ah ok, found it, but I have no experience with it before and so not sure....Your email client Eudora should have something to set its self as the default email application and then Use my current e-mail application ShOuLd work.

    Thanks for the clarification. Understood.

    Apparently when I installed TB the other week, it must have made itself the default e-mailer, although ... when clicking on a link the other day in FF, it brought up Eudora and not TB. Right now, Chrome is using Eudora - but probably because I got rid of TB.

    Any idea as to why Eudora is not showing up in the "Set Program Access and Defaults?"

    I've not a clue as to how to get Eudora into Set Program Access & Defaults, but at least Eudora is coming up as the default e-mailer. One reason being, TB that I didn't use is off the system, but as to why Eudora & Windows Mail is coming up as the default e-mailer is not of my doings.
    Thanks for the input!!!
