In internet explorer when I click to the E-mail address it opens up Microsoft Outlook. My Internet Options are set to use Outlook Express for E-mail and Newsgroups. How do I get it back? The only thing set to use Microsoft Office Outlook is Calendar.
Clicking E-mail address in IE opens Outlook Express
Do these first to ensure OE is really your default client in sending email through IE:
Go to Start and then Run. In the run box type "C:PROGRAM FILESOUTLOOK EXPRESSMSIMN.EXE" /reg
Open up IE, go to Tools, Internet Options, Programs and pick Outlook Express as your default mail client
For your hyperlinks to start using Outlook Express, follow the steps below:
Open IE, go to View, Folder Options and File Types in Windows Explorer.
The values for URL:MailTo Protocol should be application:
"C:PROGRAM FILESOUTLOOK EXPRESSMSIMN.EXE" /mailurl:%1
Another way of setting Outlook Express as the default mail client:
Go to Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs
Choose Set Programs Access and Defaults
Select Custom and then Choose a Default Email Program by setting it to Outlook Express
