12.3. When I Start Outlook Express, I See a Message About It Not Being the “Default Mail Client”—What Should I Do?

Almost all mail, or e-mail, clients attempt to register themselves as your “default mail client” when you install or run them. Thankfully, the better-behaving ones ask you first.

This is important because if you have more than one e-mail client on your machine (such as Outlook and Outlook Express) and you click a mailto link on a Web page, the e-mail client application that is run is defined as the default. Because this book is specifically about using Outlook as your e-mail client and this chapter is about using Outlook Express solely for the purposes of a newsreader, we suggest unchecking the Always perform this check… option and then clicking the No button. That way, your default e-mail client continues to be Outlook and you are not bothered with this question again.
