  1. That could indeed be the problem.
    I think the beta is only open to US residents at this point.

    Yes, I'm sure that's it. When WLMD is finally released, you should see it
    offered at the (Windows) Live website.

    I am using Outlook 2003 with Vista. When clicking an email address in
    webpage, I receive the message: default email client not specified.

    Although Outlook is functioning normally, the program is not shown i
    Default Programs, no matter whether I choose Custom or Microsoft

    I believe that solving this problem will necessitate editing th
    registry, but I have been unable to find instructions for the prope
    string in the Vista environment.

    I tried to add the string URL Protocol. That didn't open a message i
    Outlook, but it did fix the other problem I was having of multipl
    windows opening and crashing everything

  6. To set Outlook as the default mail client,- Go to Start, Run - Type in the
    following with quotation marks and press OK
    "C:\program files\microsoft office\office\outlook.exe" /checkclient
    For more information on Outlook see:

    Bad news. I tried the fix recommended by Frank, but it did not work.
    Outlook is still not an available email program in IE/Default Programs

    With re the Slipstick fix, I am using Vista, and I could not find th
    File Types function that is apparently available in XP

  8. Another way to see that dialog (in XP--I don't use Vista) is Run...

    control folders

    You could also do that under cmd.exe in case it was necessary
    to do it using Run as... with a more capable account.

    .... Still no fix (see my previous posts). I am convinced that this i
    problem must be solved within Vista. None of the solutions ha
    penetrated the Default Programs requirements in Vista. Windows XP nee
    not apply

    Please recall that I am trying to use Outlook 2003 as my default mai

    Additional suggestions are appreciated. Explicit directions ar
    appreciated as I am a wannabe geek

    Thread history (note that you piggybacked onto someone else's ongoing
    thread, adding to the confusion):

    Your problem is with OL, not IE: Post to an OL-specific newsgroup, please.

    I am having a similar problem. I have 3 identitie/e-mail accounts on one
    computor. They are all ran through, not hotmail or anything like
    that. When I open up MS Outlook, how can I toggle between accounts?
    Presently it must be the default that is opening and i can not find the other
    2 accounts. It seems to me that there should be a way to open the other
