Is there a reason for having Outlook Express enabled in addition to Outlook

by Tig2 In reply to outlook v outlook express

I removed Outlook Express when I installed Outlook on my pc. I have never had this issue.

If you don't use Outlook Express, uninstall it. Your life will be easier.

For some odd reason, Outlook Express thinks that it is the default mail client instead of Outlook. As I said- if you don't require it, be rid of it. Full Outlook is (marginally) better.

Default Email Client

by Sophia Kelly In reply to outlook v outlook express

If you want Outlook to come up instead of Outlook Express when you click on an email link on a web page, for example, you can set it as the default email program. Here's how:
1) Open internet explorer
2) Go to Tools>>Options in the menu
3) Click on 'programs'
4) Change the program set to use for 'email' to Outlook from Outlook Express (express is usually the default.
5) Click the OK button.

You're done.
