To make Outlook Express your default email program please follow these steps :

  • Close outlook express if it's already running.
  • Go to the Start button and select Run
  • Type "msimn /reg" in the run box and then press OK
  • Wait for 60 seconds while Windows makes some changes in the background (you won't see anything on the screen)
  • Start outlook express
  • Go to the Tools menu and select Options
  • Click the General tab
  • In the Default Messaging Programs section neat click Make Default button
  • Click Apply and then click OK
Oops! 2010! Still viable? Sure, must be. Question: is okay to download and use the foregoing in making OE my default email account with Yahoo as my OE mail server?
