    Make sure this file has .reg as its extension so that it can be merged with the registry. Now double click this file and click yes. Reboot your machine and Done!

    You don't know but this has helped me so much. I was looking for this for a long time and finally it is possible. For me even the Set Default Programs didn't help... Thanks again!

    Re: Set Outlook Express as your Default E-Mail Client

    You may change your e- mail client by default to outlook express. Go to start menu and choose control panel and then choose internet option. Double click on internet option. There will be a internet program types are listed. Just go to under e mail program and select outlook from that and click OK. This will be set by default email client as outlook express forever on your system.
