Making Verizon mail my default mail program with IE8

When sending an email from a web page (using IE8), is it possible to set things up so that it automatically uses my Verizon email?


Thanks in advance.

***Edit, I re-read the question and discovered I answered incorrectly. here is the correct answer.



Yes, Set up an email client program such as Windows Mail, Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or any other of the hundreds of other email programs out there. Once that is set up with your verizon email. then just make that email program the default program in IE 8. thats all there is to it
