Considering the popularity of email client programs, we have posted many OmniTech Support reviews and tech support guides here that would be of assistance to the not-so-tech-savvy users. For example, if you are not familiar with using an email client program, you might not know how to set it as your default email application and this would mean that you have to choose the application every time you open an email message in your computer. So, here is how to set Outlook Express as your default email client.
Steps to follow
In most cases, Outlook Express might already be set as the default email application in your computer. However, this might not be the same always, and you may have to change the settings and make Outlook Express your default email client manually.
To do that, go to the Run command box in the Start Menu after closing Outlook Express email client, if running. Now, enter the command msimn /reg in the pop-up box, and wait for a few seconds. You will see a message or dialog box appear on the screen.
If not, just launch Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu, and then, select Options. Select the General tab you see there. There you will see the heading Default Messaging Programs. Select the option Make Default and click on OK to save these settings. Outlook Express will be set as your default application now.

If you were installing Outlook Express separately, the installation wizard would ask you to set it as the default mail client in your system. You just need to select this option as you proceed with the installation. If not, when you are running Outlook Express for the first time, you will be asked to set it as the default application.
If you have ignored all this before, you can still make it the default email application by following the steps mentioned above. Keep in mind that whenever you install another email client, these settings might also be altered. So, make sure that you check the default email client status of Outlook Express after you installed any new email program in the system.
Actually, Outlook Express is a very old email client. The last version was released back in 2001. Go through the OmniTech Support reviews provided here on the latest email client programs available and pick one that suits your needs better.
