The default email program on my computer is MS Outlook Express.

I've also got MS Outlook installed as this came with MS Office 2000, but I don't use MS Outlook at all.

Lately, I've had a window opening following booting which has the title "Microsoft Outlook".

The window message reads : "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client".

I don't want to change my default email client as I prefer to work on the basis of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Can anyone tell me how I can prevent this message popping up following booting please?

Thanks rojash.

I'm using OE6 and under the general tab at the bottom of the window it says " This application is the default mail handler". The box next to it that says "make default" is grayed out, so I assume OE is already the default handler.

There's nothing else there to change as far as I can see.
