Outlook Express - Default

  roygbiv 09:43 07 Nov 2006

When I choose things to send by email, I get a message that I cant send as mt default email client is not Outlook??

I want to use Outlook Express (as normal)
There is Outlook loaded (but NOT used).

How can I use Outlook Express as my DEFAULT??

In OE, go to Tools/Options/General tab and click the button 'Make Default' Outlook Express should then by your default mail client.

If the options are available then yes. I use Outlook so the Calendar option is there, I cannot recall whether outlook express has a calendar, I think it does not. the drop downs will or should include your installed options.

I am on IE7 where the make default is associated with the browser choice only. Otherwise any changes are confirmed with the apply button.

Also try Set Program Access and Defaults from Start button.
