Default mail client not working in Outlook 2003
Posted on 2009-07-09
Problem 1: For some reason I've never been able to get Firefox to use Outlook as my default mail client. And I can't find where you set that. No matter what I do, it always launches gmail for some reason.
Here's a list of all the things I've done:
1) In IE, I've selected Microsoft Outlook as my mail client under Internet Options, Programs
2) In Firefox, under Options, Applications, "Mailto" is set to "Use Microsoft Outlook"
Problem 2: Also, for some reason now (this is only just recently, last few weeks), whenever I click on an email address IN Outlook, it tries to open Internet explorer and then IE tells me, "Cannot perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed.
Please note, Problem 1 has been happening since I installed Firefox a year ago and have never been able to find the right fix. Problem 2 just started a few weeks ago.
