Download Affixa, to use Gmail or Yahoo mail from any application on your PC
You may want to avoid Outlook or Outlook Express and use always your Gmail or Yahoo mail account. With Affixa you can handle “mailto” email links in web pages, send emails directly from Windows Explorer, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and all or almost all the applications on your PC, while automatically attaching files to a new email message, without manually uploading each file to Google or Yahoo; you can also choose to suppress the annoying standard text provided by Windows (“Your attachments are ready to send”).
You need a Gmail or Yahoo mail account to use gAttach or yAttach. If you’re already logged into this mail account via Internet Explorer, Affixa won’t ask for any login details. If you’re not logged in via Internet Explorer, it will show you a mini web browser to ask for your login details. It does not monitor or record your login details; it merely checks to see if you’re already logged in and take you to Google or Yahoo if you’re not.
If you have any concerns, it is recommended that you log in to Gmail or Yahoo via Internet Explorer before attaching files. Make sure you choose the “Remember me on this computer” option.
Affixa is free for personal use, but you have to pay if you need to use it in an organization, corporation, etc., or have multiple accounts and signatures.
