IE/Outlook Express help

  1. Something changed on my PC...default mail was on Outlook Express. Now, when I go into Internet Options to select OE as the default, it isn't an option...just Outlook. Any ideas on how to set this back to use OE as default?

    When you open OE doesn't it say that this isnt' your default mail client and would you like to make it.

    Anyway try this: Open OE, go to tools menu, then options down at the bottom. Then look at this screen shot I took, and click "Make Default" where it says its not your default mail handler.

    Thanks...I finally had to uninstall Microsoft Office as just uninstalling Outlook and OE weren't an option. Then had to take IE back down to previous version. Then load Microsoft Office again...choosing only OE...then upgrade to IE 6 SP1 again...thanks for the suggestions!!
