    When you are on the Programs tab in Internet Options, are you selecting Outlook Express from the drop down beside E-mail: and then clicking Apply, OK, and OK?

    You might need to registry Outlook Express if it isn't in the list. Check the path in windows explorer to Outlook Express, should be C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\Msimn.Exe
    If it is, use this or change to the correct path.
    Start> Run> type or copy and paste including the quotes:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\Msimn.Exe" /reg then hit OK.
