    Outlook Express spontaneously changed to Outlook - WHY?

    It gave me no choice and although no data appears to have been lost I'm a bit pissed off.

    Can I expect more of this with XP Home?

    yrxt4: You only need to post your questions once. If it hasn't been addressed, instead of starting another one, just give it a little *bump* :)

    Thank's for that tip old chap.

    The connection had timed out and when I refreshed the screen the post was resent, so sorry.

    right click the start button under the start menu tab click customize. Under the general tab you can select which proggie will handle email. No it does not happen spontaniously. You might have been prompted by 'Outlook is currently not you default program for email would you like it to be' and you may have slected 'yes'

    I assume you have installed sp1... it came with new and improved mind reading powers v 1.2 from M$. They read your mind and then charge you credit card or empty your bank account.
    :D

    Hahahahahaha Jewelzz is an 'old chap'. hahahahahahaha

    I had to remove MS Outlook because it refused to yield. It even took over my keyboard shortcut to OE & would not give it back. :mad:
