    When using IE7 and using the "contact us" of WEB sites, we get the error
    “default mail client not properly installedâ€. In the IE tools panel OL is
    specified as the default mail client. Outlook works OK. I tried Monzila
    Firefox and all works OK, I do want to keep using IE. The PC is a standalone
    box with a single user. I decided to redownload IE & reintall it, the error
    then occurs that I have access rights problems with the Temp files, the HD
    has plenty of space. Even when I tried to use MS update to download a IE7
    the same issue occurs.
    Thanks in anticipation

  2. What do you want to be your default mail program?

    I want OL 2003 to be the default, which is what I have setup in IE7

  4. 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
    NOTE: Fix the path if your path is different.
    For more information on Outlook see:
