Default email

I have Outlook 2000 as my email software.

However, it appears that my systems recognizes Outlook Express as the default email reader.

When I open WordPad, File, Send - Then Help, About - it is using Outlook Express.

How can I change it so the system uses Outlook not Express?

This is actually causing a problem with a 3rd party application which sees Outlook Express as the mail reader.

This should do it system wide for you.

Sorry stafi, you were 10 minutes behind.

I guess I just blew 100 points on an easy question.

Oh, well!

Thanks!
