WIN XP HE
Hi,. I use a program that has a menu item as such: Tool|Read Mail
This is (obviously) designed to open up your default email client (in my
case Outlook 2002).
Unfortunately for me, for some unknown reason, when I try to use this
option, it wants me to install MSN Explorer--just as if I had chosen hotmail
as my default email or MSN Explorer.
In my IE 6 settings under Programs, Outlook is the default email client.
I have also notice some registry keys that could be causing this incorrect
behavior but I am not sure.
Is there a setting that I can modify to "release" this MSN Explorer thing?
Perhaps, the program I use is looking at some WIN XP setting and thinks that
MSN Explorer is connected to my default email client....
Suggestions?
Tx,
S

That is already set properly Frank.
Any other ideas?

Look in start menu, all programs, at the top, there should be a 'set program
access and defaults'

Select a different client from Internet Options, Programs tab. Click OK and close the dialog. Repeat the procedure, and reset your preferred email client (OL) again. If that does not help, download DefaultMail and click "Clear per-user settings.........." button:

Set the default email client on a per-user basis:
