Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Default Programs.

Click Set your default programs.

Under Programs, click the e‑mail program you'd like to use, and then click Set this program as default.

Click OK.

Hello JanetWWK;

You're were using Windows 7 AND Outlook Express together?

Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, select Internet Options. Click Programs tab and select your email client from the drop-down list. Once selected, click OK/Apply button.

Typically how its done in Xp.

I would have to agree with you WR2, the likely hood of somebody using express with win7 is low, was a quick response and I just overlooked the norm. I know express can be run in win 7, but its not often somebody does.

That should get it done.
