problems outlook express/outlook default program

  montrachet 17:58 05 Jul 2007

Anybody help please. I have Outlook Express set as my default mail program. If I select a page or link to send from my email browser (Internet Explorer), or photo from my photos, the first time it uses the default Outlook Express. If I wish to send another link, page or photo it selects Outlook.
This is driving me nuts. I have repeatedly reset my default to Outlook Express but it still does it.
Any ideas gratefully received.

Have you checked in program access and defaults ?

Sorry little vague as im on Vista at the moment.

Thanks for your help and apologies for not responding before.
I have tried many times to set the default email program.
What actually happens is that each time I do this, it then returns to whatever the original settings were and continues to bring up Outlook the second time I try to send a link or a page from an internet page.
Any more ideas anybody would be gratefully received.

Hi, Is Internet explorer set as your default browser?

Also click on Tools {IE7} Internet options> Programs, is outlook express set as the Internet service?
