    The email program I actively use is Outlook Express. When I click on a direct link within an email or web site context, my computer uses Microsoft Outlook instead of Outlook Express. Then it puts the message into MS Outbox and it dies there. Please help me! Trish Miller email: [email protected]

    Not sure how to get Outlook Express to steal back your Outlook email, but here's how you stop Outlook from stealing the email in the 1st place:

    (1) In IE, go to Tools >> Internet Options (you can also access Internet Options from Control Panel).
    (2) Click on the Programs tab.
    (3) Click the drop-down next to Email, and change it to Outlook Express.
    (4) Click Apply and OK.
