If I remember correctly (it's been a really long time since I used Outlook or AIM), this has to do with the fact that AIM becomes your default instant messaging client. Try this:

Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Set Program Access and Defaults
Change your default Instant Messenger back to Windows Messenger.

I think that should fix it.

Under prefrences under Sign On/Off uncheck the first check box "Make AIM my default instant messaging program"

this will take care of things w/o having to using windows access/defaults.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

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???
