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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
