standard emailprogram

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Jan van Gastel, Oct 17, 2003.

  1. I had installed Outlook (as a part of MsOffice), but I uninstalled it again,
    beacuse it has way to many possibilities for me. But now Outlook express is
    not my standard email program any more. When I set it to 'standard', the
    setting is gone when I look again. What do I do??

    In OE click "tools" "options" "general" and at the bottom of the dialogue
    box click "make default".

    There's a possibility that OE wasn't configured properly, in which case
    close it down, go to Run on the Start menu and type the following,
    (including the quotation marks): "C:\Program Files\Outlook
    Express\msimn.exe" /reg Open OE and go to Tools > Options and on
    the General tab OE should now be the default and the Make Default button
    should be greyed out.

  4. Hi Larry,

    Windows says it cannot find the file "C:\Program Files\Outlook

  5. Chet,

    I already tried that, but when I close the window and open again, it is not
    'default' any more.

    Hi Jan

    Did you copy it exactly ..."C:\Program Files\Outlookwith a gap between exe" and /reg ?

  7. Hi Larry,

    I tried about 10 times, but always I forgot the gap. Never saw it was there.
    With the gap it worked perfectly.
    Thanks a lot.
