Windows 10: Outlook "Trial Expired" I want to use Gmail as my go to email

    Outlook "Trial Expired" I want to use Gmail as my go to email


    Hello,

    I cannot find the correct method for removing the expired trial version of Outlook which was included with Windows 10 and Microsoft Office Home and Business Office 2010.

    I have Word and also Excel which I use in my business. What I want to do is be able to use the "send email" tab in the Excel file drop down menu. But when I click on the send as email tab, Outlook Tries to open, but I get this message window: "Thank you for installing Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010. This trial has expired. You may purchase a full version at any time by clicking upgrade now (below)"

    I do not use Outlook at all. I prefer to use gmail as the default email. I want to be able to click on any link to reply or send an email and have gmail pop open (like Outlook tries to do).

    I have read several link articles on how to do this, but none have worked. ANYONE ??

    Thanks!

    Hey Ricobob-

    I'm not as familiar with using strictly web-based email accounts (or Excel) as some, so there might very well be an easy way for you to do this without using any third party email programs, but what about installing Thunderbird (free)?

    It sounds as if Outlook is the default email for Excel (??). I don't know if you are able to change the defaulted email client to what you want within Excel, or if it uses the system's defaulted email. I'm not even sure you can use a non-MS email client, as I know nothing about Excel.

    You should be able to easily configure Thunderbird to work with your Gmail account. In fact, I think it might do most of it for you.

    If interested in, see HERE and HERE.

    Hi:

    I am on Win7/64 and MS Office Pro Plus 2010, but it definitely works to use Thunderbird as the default email client for Excel (and Word and PPT and Publisher).

    If I click "save and send" and "send as attachment" within any of those applications, it puts a call to my default email client, Thunderbird, and opens the message composition pane, with the file already attached.
    I just need to add the address of the recipient, a subject line and any desired message body content.

    Unless M$ has changed something drastically for Win10, as long as you install and configure TB as your default email client, I would expect it would work the same way under Win10 as it does under Win7.

    EDIT: And, yes, you can configure gmail (as well as ISP and Exchange accounts) in Thunderbird.

    Cheers,

    MM
