Outlook Express as default mail handler XP Home

I am unable to set the above. If I try to set as default from OE and click apply the next time I look the box states this is not the default mail handler.
If I try from IE the only option shown is MS outlook.
If I click on a link from an E Mail I get 60+ copies action cancelled
Please help as I have run out of ideas.

Are you setting it in control panel/internet options/programs?

Tried that, it seems to be the same box as as IE and only gives the MS outlook option.

Thanks powerless, but the only option shown is "use default mail programme" and the box will not uncheck. However in the box above there is an option to check IE as the default web browser would changing to IE as the default web browser help?
