MS Outlook popup message

  Cajul2 12:14 08 Jan 2006

Soon after booting my computer, I get a popup message from MS Outlook saying:
'Either there is no default email client or the current mail client cannot fulfil a messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default email client.'
The popup disappears if 'Enter' is pressed, but it's become irritating. Can I get rid of it? (I want Outlook Express as my default email, not Outlook).

In Internet Explorer, Tools/Internet Options, Programs tab, set Outlook Express as the default.

Many thanks VoG. I'd already checked that Outlook Express was default client, so ran msconfig and found about 30 Startup programs, few of them recognisable (to me). Unchecking two Office ones marked Osa9.exe -b -l (the other one upper case except for the last 4 characters) seems to have worked.
