I have changed my email to xfinity connect. When I tried to sent a docoment and hit email, it goes to old windows live mail which I don't use anytmore. This makes it impossible to send any docoments or pictures through xfinity connect??? Help

Re: Email

It sounds like you somehow have your default email client set to the Windows Live Mail from before.  What device/operating system are you using? What application are you in when trying to send the document via email? That application might have a setting for default email.  There may be a system setting you can change.  Windows 10 has this in Settings:

You have WLM set as your default email handler.  If you no longer use WLM, consider removing it from your system through Control Panel/Programs/Uninstall or change a program.  You will need to look for Windows Essentials 2012 [or earlier if it wasn't upgraded].

 

If you're in Appsuite [connect.xfinity.com/appsuite] when you open a Compose window there should be a notice at the top about setting connect.xfinity.com as the default mailto: handler.  Clicking that should also help.
