    The two most common methods..

    Edit the registry value at
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft Internet Mail Message\shell\open\command


    Windows Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types/
    Scroll and select EML
    Click Advanced/Open/Edit
    - the command to edit is found in the field titled 'Application used to perform action'

  2. I suspect that you are running into a problem where you see a Restore
    button rather than Advanced. If you click the Restore button it should
    restore the EML file association to Outlook Express. Once you do that ,
    you should then get the Advanced button which would allow you to
    manually fix the association.

    Vista would not have a file association to Outlook Express. It would be to
    Windows Mail unless Outlook happens to be installed.

    According to the other thread, the OP is using Win XP (SP3), not

    I have experimented with a procedure, which does seems to work
    with Win XP.

    For further details, please see the other thread.
