    Default Re: How do I set Outlook Express as DEFAULT Mail Client?

    If the above doesn't work try clicking start/Run and typing in run box

    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg

    Then change the email to Outlook Express in internet Options as above.

    OR - go Here and download the patch.

    From your other post that speedy so nicely pointed to, without that it would have been

    Try this - re-registering Outlook Express as the default e-mail application by going to Start, Run, type cmd and hit Enter. At the command prompt, type in the following:

    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg

    Be sure and include the quotation marks.

    Once you've done that, open up your Internet Options, - Open Internet Explorer.
    Click the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
    Click the Programs tab.
    In the E-mail: field, select "Outlook Express" from the drop-down menu.
    Click OK.

    Well thanks heaps...
    That seems to have worked OK.
    I went into IE/Tools/Internet Options/Programs and I could set OE as the email program !!

    Now when I go into OE Tools/Options/General - it says the OE is the default...

    Many thanks.

    That's exactly the info that I needed...
    Keep up the good work
