Making Outlook my default mail handler

  bodgertoo 15:55 30 Nov 2003

Hi. I deleted Incredimail as I couldn't do a mail merge due to outlook not being my default mail client, as I thought Outlook would automatically ask to be the default.

This hasn't happened and I cannot get Outlook registered as my default, I've run detect and repair, and looked in every menu, but no luck.

Can anyone help.

Thanks in advance,

Tools-options-other and tick 'make Outlook the default programme for email etc.

That was for outlook 2002, if you mean oitlook Express then it is tools-options-general and drill down to the base under 'default messaging progs'.

Hi guys. I am using outlook 2000, and there is no 'Make outlook my default' box to tick in Tools>options>other (Thanks anyway Gandalf)

In Internet Explorer Tools/Internet Options, Programs tab, select Microsoft Office Outlook for E-mail, Canendar and Contacts.
