    Default Default email client

    I am trying to get Outlook Express recognised as the default email client - it keeps trying to use Outlook even though not installed. The Tools/Options/Programs screen doesn't even offer Express as an option in drop down menu. Any ideas?
    Cheers
    Peter.

    Hi Peter,

    Try reinstalling Outlook Express from add/remove programs or if that option is not available reinstalling Internet Explorer.

    Unfortunately I'm running Win ME and neither program shows up in Add/Remove - they're part of the O.S it seems.

    Peter:

    Did you ever solve this one - I'm running XP and have the same problem which has so far defeated me.

    1. Find your MSIMN.exe file (generally at C:\Program Files\Outlook Express). Having located that file, go to Start | Run and browse to your MSIMN.exe file and click OK. When the correct path shows up in the Run line, add the following parameter at the end "/reg" (without the quotation marks). In other words, the Run line will look like this: "C:\Program File\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg (this time with the quotation marks!!). After running that command from Start | Run, try again to see if now enabling OE as your default Mail and News client under Tools | Options | General works.

    Set Outlook Express as default mail client - Start/Run and type:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE"/REG.
