    open regedit then go to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\random\Software\Microsoft\OutlookExpress\
    change the Window Title key on the right.

    that was all meant to be on one line, i swear these forums are crap at parsing input.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Identities
    Random Value
    Software
    Microsoft
    OutlookExpress

    ...is what you're after.

    I usually have a self made .reg file for these sort of things, so I can reset th titlebars if they get branded by an isp or company.

    Outlook and IE titlebars are usually changed by ISP setup files, so its a common problem and therefore there's plenty of different resources on the net (usually ISP's who don't want 1000's of e-mails asking how to remove their banding) that will explain how to remove the "branding".

    As for regedit, as a general rule pop it open, then hit CTRL+F and do a search for the application name that you are having a problem with.

    You could also get Xteq, and put your own brand on many things, for those who would like to avoid the registry.
