I have a windows vista laptop. Ok, i will try to be specific as possible. I think everyone knows about craigslist. Well when i click the hyperlinks, i want my hotmail account to open up, not outlook because i do not want to pay for outlook. Does anyone know how to change the default so whenever i click on a hyperlink, it opens up my hotmail account. Thank you

Normally under Internet Explorer 6 this is configurable to change to Hotmail, however this option seems to have been removed in IE7 for XP and I dare say it doesn't exist under IE7 for Vista either.

You can use Thunderbird to manage your Hotmail account, with a couple of extensions and have that be the default instead.
