    A lot of websites I go to and click on Contact us or email us nothing happens and therefore I cannot find the email address ,
    I have found a Way around that is plug in my Mouse and right click properties and sometimes I get the email address ,
    However this is annoying as happens alot .. Yes pop up window is turned off so if pop up should work
    any help fixing would be great ..

    example of webpage below

    If you're using Safari you can ctrl+click on the email link and go to "copy email address" and it's sent to your clipboard. Or if you just want to view the email address you can go to View > Show Status Bar and then hover over the link and the email address will come up in the status bar.

    When you click on the email link it should by default open Mail.app, however, if you've deleted Mail or use something else this may not be the case. What are you using as an email client?

    Mail.app > Preferences > General > Default Email Reader

    Change this to Entourage and the links should open a new mail in Entourage.

    :)

    Hi mate

    yes unfortunately as I mentioned before the mail.app does not open or at least if it does I cannot find it , when i click mail it flashes and nothing else happens , however in the column next to it says "preview" that has name ,when created last opened etc , says opened last date -- and that was now , but i cannot find the program anywhere , so cannot get to the mail preferences ..??

    is this because i have Entourage or something ..
    thanks

    I worked it out , the mail.app was not working so I deleted this reinstalled it from the leopard DVD and now when I click mail.app it opens . and as a result when i click the contact email on websites it auto opens Entourage and new message with the email address up ..

    Thanks Mark
