    :D

    Ok here's my question, a while back I was able to make Windows messenger open up Outlook Express instead of going to Hotmail.com, which would always ask me for my password even though in the option box I had the
    "CHeck for password" unchecked, and when the logon screen came up I would always put keep me logged in.

    Anyways, I liked it alot better when it would send me to outlook express, and I also have it setup as my defualt mail client.

    Any ideas on how I can get this option back, is it a registry thing, or something.


    Thanks alot.

    the only thing i can think of is that you had an old hotmail account set up in outlook express. The .net services don't work that way anymore, i don't think. In older verisons of Outlook express you had the built-in option to create a hotmail account directly through it. Now it's all migrating to .net. You might be able to accomplish what you want if you can find the pop3 account information and manually enter it into Outlook Expresses "add" account wizard. Sorry i couldn't help you out.
