this should help you
http://www.freeemailtutorials.com/microsoftWindows/settingDefaultEmailClient.cwd

The common Internet program types (including email applications) are listed on the program tabs of the Internet Properties window/dialog.

Under E-mail, all email programs recognized as such by Windows will be listed: Outlook 2003 will be among these if it is installed on your computer.

Select Outlook 2003 from the E-mail drop-down, and click OK to validate your choice.

I use "microsoft outlook" not outlook express. I had checked the "control panel - internet options" and the "microsoft outlook" is not in the drop down list.

There should be a setting in Outlook to make it your "default" client

From Outlooks main window, go to Tools > Options; in the Options dialog that opened, click on the "Other" tab.

Under General, check the Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar checkbox.

Click OK to validate your choice. Outlook should now be your default email client

Could also try clearing the checkbox, clicking OK and then close Outlook. Go back in, check the box and see what happens. Weird that it's not in the drop down box though.

Outlook often forgets that enabled settings are in fact enabled. Cycling them as suggested by kcnychief may help.

If not you'll want to remove and reinstall office :)

Or simply do a repair of the current install.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
