Hello,

My default e-mail client is Eudora.  How can I change that so that my default e-mail client is Outlook Express 5.0.6?

I'm sending automated e-mails and I want to be able to send them with Outlook.

Thanks

Jorge.

Greetings, frankmorrison !

In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Options > General tab. At the bottom, click on "Make Default" button by email client.

In Eudora, go to preference menu and unselect check if Eudora is default email client.

Best wishes!

frankmorrison,

I do not have Outlook Express for iMac in front of me. Go to Outlook Express options menu and look for setting to set OE as default email client.  When you were using the Application setup to setup the email account, there is a check box to select to make OE the default email client.

If you are using Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs.  And select Outlook Express as email client.  If already set, select another email client, like Eudora, click OK to close. Open again and set OE as default email client.

1. On the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
2. Click Internet, and then click the Email tab.
3. On the Default Email Client pop-up menu, click the name of the email client you want.
4. On the System Prefs menu, click Quit System Prefs.

war1,

Thanks for the responses.  Your answers were right on target according to what I asked.  However, the problem had to do with automating an e-mail client to send e-mails from another application (which I failed to mention) The e-mail client had to support MAPI to do this.  Anyway, thanks for your help.
