    Default Outlook 2007 has taken over my Outlook Express account

    I have just installed Office 2007, silly me. Now all my incoming mail, which I try to receive through my xtra address in Outlook Express, through MailWasher, gets transferred to MS Outlook. I only used Outlook for the Calendar. However I now find Google's calendar better for me.

    Is there any way I can download my emails into Outlook Express without MS Outlook taking over?

    Thanks for any help,
    Pat.

    Setting OE as your default email app and removing your xtra details from Outlook should do the trick

    You may have to check settings in MailWasher too, I havn't had first hand experience with that program so am not certain, no doubt someody else will know.

    You dont have to remove Xtra from Outlook.

    Just run OE go to tools / options / General tab. Click on this application is the default mail handler.

    Thank you very much wratterus and Speedy Gonzales for your very prompt and most helpful solutions. This problem has already turned me grey ( I'm 85) and I was just about ready to tear my hair out.

    I'm most grateful,
    Pat.
