Setting up a default email client requires access to the client settings for incoming and outgoing mail. Certain laptops also allow users to set up a default email program for all actions.
Many Windows-based laptops offer a Default Programs setting in the Control Panel. From there, the user can choose which of the available email programs will be the default. Once the specific program is selected from the options, the computer will automatically open that program when an email address is selected.
To set up a specific Web mail option within a desktop client, open mail settings and provide the required information, which typically includes user name or full email address, password, account type, and incoming and outgoing mail server type.
