    still keeps going to OE. Can anyone help?

    This is very easy to correct.
    Start Outlook Express. If you are not prompted to allow it to be the default
    e-mail client,
    go to tools | Options and make it the default.
    Close Outlook Express and Start Outlook, it will immediately tell you it is
    not the default e-mail
    program and ask you if you would like it to be the default. Answer YES!
    Problem Solved.
