If you were previously using Outlook Express and you've not changed the settings you can just go back to it.

Open Outlook Express and in Tools > Options > General and at the bottom click on 'Make Default' and then click on OK

note: you will have to do this every time you have Microsoft Updates as they always change the Default to Outlook if it is installed.
