Setting MS Outlook to default

  johnmelad 19:57 19 Nov 2008

I have both MS Outlook Express and MS Outlook (don't ask). When I click on email addresses on the web MS Outlook Express opens, I would like MC Outlook to be opened. So how do I set MS Outlook to default?

In MS outlook try tools/options/others and put a tick against make outlook the default program for E-mails

Assume Windows XP and IE7. Open IE7 and got to tools - options and on the programs tab you should be able to select Outlook as the default e-mail program. It is different for Vista which is what I am currently using so hope I have remembered correctly.
