    If I remember correctly (it's been a really long time since I used Outlook or AIM), this has to do with the fact that AIM becomes your default instant messaging client. Try this:

    Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Set Program Access and Defaults
    Change your default Instant Messenger back to Windows Messenger.

    I think that should fix it. [​IMG]

    Under

    Under prefrences under Sign On/Off uncheck the first check box "Make AIM my default instant messaging program"

    this will take care of things w/o having to using windows access/defaults.
