When I click a link, something like 'click to email' a browser pops up for me to sign in to hotmail. I don't use hotmail, how/what do I change so that my Outlook (not express) is used?

Yep, it's set as default there also. Damn M$ can't do anything right :mad:

[Edit] Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail
it also say (and I have no clue what this means)
PreFirstRun "Either there is no defaul mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run MS Outlook and set it as the default mail clinet. *Microsoft Outlook"

:confused:

Thats just the message it will show when its first run. mine has it too

i don't think this has any thing to do with it but never the less

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSN\Mail
"client" set to "Microsoft Outlook"


try deleteing the hotmail key under the mail key, then run outlook

Hi dijital
When you go to a website some have 'click here to email' this used to open a new email from my Outlook. Ever since I put MSNM back on the system when I click those links a new browser opens for me to sign in to Hotmail so I can send an email. I want it back the way it was before putting stupid MSNM back on the computer.
Does that make sense now?

how weird. its set in email to outlook, yet it opens another browser to hotmail?

well i use outlook express and it works fine for me. change your setting to outlook express and see if it works, just as a test.

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
