Outlook express as default mail handler

  Davith 16:52 30 Dec 05

XP SP2 outlook express options shows it is not default mail handler. I click make default then apply, the legend changes to now default. Click OK and options box closes. Re open OE options legend shows it is not default again. Also in ie 6 options. Open programs tab shows no entry for outlook express in the dropdown window.

The result of this is that if I am in a website and use this web sites mailto link. Approx 62 ie windows open in rapid succession culminating in a window with the unable to find screen.

Think this should be in the Helproom Forum - not networking. I`ll have a look at the problem in the morning though!

Hi VoG
Thanks for your solution. I am now able to set my Default mail handler and it stays there.

Many thanks again!

Thought you might get a bit more help in this forum - VoG beat me to it this morning though! Thanks to FE for moving it from the Networking Forum in the early hours.
