I just installed a new computer and I am using Outlook for my default email. I believe the account is set up properly with the appropriate incoming and outgoing servers based on the setup of the previous computer. When in Outlook, I can send and receive email without any issues. However, when on the Internet and I click on an email (mailto:) link, my computer opens Outlook Express to send the email. I don't want to use Outlook only as my email server for everything. Please let me know how to get rid of Outlook Express.

Hi triptych1, To set Outlook as your default program for email: Start Internet Explorer. Select Tools > Internet Options from the menu. Go to the Programs tab. Make sure Microsoft Office Outlook or Microsoft Outlook is selected under E-mail. Click OK. I hope this is helpful.
