Hi, Try setting the default mail program by using the shortcut "Set Program Access and Defaults" from the start menu. This should work the same way it does in Internet Options, but hopefully, this will correct your problem. To send a message using Outlook, press the Alt S key combination. I hope this helps, Ryan -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of G.W.

I would rather have it in Outlook Express. I checked IE 7 tools, internet options, programs page, and Outlook Express is the default. Any Ideas how to make it happen? In case I have to live with the Outlook form, what is the keystroke to send the message?
