HI, suddenly developed fault with Outlook Express 6. Whenever I receive e-mail with link in message I cannot connect to site when I click on link. Nothing happens, cant shut OE down by clicking on close button have to use windows task manager and close down that way.Probably something simple but grateful for any help.

Hi familyman2

With all windows closed.
Start > Run
Key in:
"C:\program files\outlook express\msimn.exe" /reg

Verify this is the path that msimn.exe is located and be sure to include the quotes.

Then open Outlook Express,
Tools > Options > General tab,
and verify Outlook Express is your default messaging program at the bottom of the page.

Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab
verify Outlook Express is showing in the E-mail window.

Let us know if this works or not.

Thanks for that, appears OK. However when following these instructions

With all windows closed.
Start > Run
Key in:
"C:\program files\outlook express\msimn.exe" /reg

Verify this is the path that msimn.exe is located and be sure to include the quotes.


The only think that happened was the IE icon on the desktop was highlighted. Is this usual.

Yes, that behavior is normal.

There is no fanfare when you register Outlook Express as the default email program.
