    When I click on a web-link that should bring up a new email with the To: address filled in I get the following error message, 'Could not perform this operation because the default email client is not properly installed'. How do I reconnect Outlook Express to the default?

    Thanks!

    You might want to try re-installing Internet Explorer and upgrade to the latest version (if it's not already installed), or go to Tool-->Internet Options-->Programs and ensure that Outlooks express is the set as the default for e-mail.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks guys! This is what I had to do:
    In Outlook Express, click Tools, and then click Options.
    On the General tab, the Default Messaging Programs section states Outlook Express is NOT the default mail handler; click Make Default, and then click OK.
