Outlook and Outlook Express

    Here's my situation:

    I use Outlook Express for e-mail and the address book, and I use Outlook for the calendar, tasks, notes, etc.

    Everytime I open up Outlook, it will set itself as the default mail client (even though I have unchecked the option to make it the default). Is there any way to stop Outlook from making itself the default mail client..?

    Thanks in advance.

    Try unchecking both apps.

    I don't want to sound ignorant, but what would that do?

    If the other one is ticked as default then when the other is opened even though it is unticked could still be trying to take over.

    Yes I figured that was the point :)

    I'll do that.. once I can get Outlook as the default, because you can't uncheck Outlook Express as the default mail client.

    Give me a second, and I'll reply back with results heh.

    EDIT: Outlook doesn't seem to want to become the default mail client anymore :p I'll reply back to this thread when it changes it's mind lol.. :rolleyes:
