How To "Un-Default" Outlook Express



After selecting Outlook Express as my default email program, I regret it. I want to change to the latest Pegasus. I've looked but Uncle Bill hid the O.E. "off" or "kill" button so well that I can't find it.

Where is it & how do I use it to "Un-default" Outlook Express? Your help will be much apprciated. My browser is Opera 6.05 & O/S is Windows XP home.

Best regards, Dick


I may actually be insane.
I don't think you can un-default as such, try setting Pegasus to default instead, it should override the OE settings.

when you launch another mail client, it should ask you if you want it to be your default...have you dissabled that window?..

here's a screenshot of my fox mail default option window...I don't know what your gui will take you to, but it's there somewhere


In Internet Explorer Click 'Tools' > Internet Options > Programs Tab click drop down for email and select what you want... click 'Ok' and your done


Thanks to all that replied to my post. I apologize for taking so long to respond but I had changed ISP's & forgot to update my my email address on the forum. So, automatic email notifications that you had replied never arrived here.

Thanks to your help, the situation is fixed! Outlook Express now sleeps in the back seat while Pegasus runs the email show. I installed SP1 - used the "Set Program Access & Defaults" option as desired & voila - joy! "Take that Uncle Bill"!

If anyone out there uses Pegasus - especially is you're sending streaming email attachments with it - boy, I'd sure like to talk to you about settings.

Best regards & Happy Holidays guys, Dick
