Default e-Mail Application Error

Hey all;

I have a small problem on WinXP with multiple user accounts. Me and my girlfriend use the same pc. I use Outlook 2002 in my profile and she uses Outlook Express in hers.

Now, when she checks her mail, she gets this dialog box telling her that Outlook Express isn't currently the default e-mail application, and asking if she wishes to change that. Well, she clicks on 'Yes' and everything else is just fine until I check my mail.

When I log on to my account and try to check my mail using Outlook 2002 I get the same dialog box: Outlook XP isn't currently the default e-mail app.... When I click on Yes the default setting changes in my account as well in my girl's.


Any1?


thnx

Pretty sure that if you look in the options or that box that pops up with the message about being default you can stop either one looking at whether it is default or not. Might be something like 'No & don't ask again' which should be ticked instead of 'yes'. There is a way to do it.
What I'm trying to say is make them both set to 'Don't see if default or not'.

I know, but that doesn't solve my problem. Coz if my girl-friend answers 'No' to the question, and then she clicks on a 'mail-to'-link Outlook XP will start in stead of Outlook Express...


Ticking the checkbox doesn't change the situation. I only need the profiles retain their default mail application setting, and they don't.


Thnx for feedback thou.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
