Microsoft Internet Explorer/Outlook Express


When I discover an interesting item on the internet, (BBC News in today's case), if I hit the site's 'email' (eg. 'email this item to a friend') button, an Outlook Express pane comes up set to a long obsolete email address of mine. It is very hart make this pane go away and it always takes several tries at it. I have spent a lot of time looking for the key to deleting or changing this non-functional email address but I probably miss the appropriate help because so many computer phrases are opaque to me.  

Hi Tony,

Regarding your issue, please note that when you use Send>Page by Email option to send any page, and if your default email outlook express, it will try to  use the default profile that has been stored under control panel>Mail settings. In order to use a different email address, you may have to remove the old profile and add a new user profile but if you want use a different email client, then you may have to change it using below steps.

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

2.Click Set your default programs.

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

4.Click OK.

Let me know if you need any further help.
