When I click on 'Read Mail' on the Tool bar of IE7 it no longer works !

However it works OK if I click on the shortcut on the desktop quick start tool bar.

I am using Outlook Express 6 version: -
6.00. 2900.2180 (PPS_sp2_rtm.04083-2158

Anybody have any suggestions please ?

I can only suggest that you make sure Outlook Express is shown as your default email program. On the Tools menu in IE click Internet Options and click the Programs tab. Ensure that the E-Mail option is displaying Outlook Express and click OK.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes that was the problem, in the Email Box nothing was showing !

On my other PC, Internet Options > Programs > Calendar....the box shows 'Microsoft Outlook'.

On the Calendar Box on the PC that had the above problem, there are no options at all.

Is this normal ?

Sorry - I've been watching the cricket! On the PC that shows nothing in the calendar box do you have Outlook installed? If not, then that box will probably be empty.

Problems with posting - but I think I made my point!!!

  freaky 18:46 22 Sep 2007

You sure made your point !!

Yes, both PC's have XP, IE7 and Microsoft Outlook.

Just checked again, there are no choices available.

The Forum seems a little slow, I almost sent the above post again.

I can't find a way of specifying the Outlook calendar when there are no options available in the box. Hopefully somebody else may come up with the solution.
