    when I go to Tools/internet options/programs/ the email box is empty, the
    newsgroup box shows "windows mail"
    if I drop down the email box I have "windows mail" "windows live mail" and
    "windows live hotmail" to choose from,
    there is nothing to indicate that Outlook express would be available, this
    error causes untold problems,especially
    when using Firetrust Mailwasher.using the reply to in that program,I am
    using IE8 and OE6+. I have had this problem for months now
    With kind regards From WillofAustralia

    See www.oehelp.com/oedef.aspx After making OE default then see if that then lists it under IE's options.

    Are you using XP or Vista? I can understand seeing "windows live mail" and
    "windows live hotmail" in Internet Options, but "windows mail" cannot
    exist on XP.

    It could be that WLM injected that as an option (i.e.: bug).

    From your headers: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.3311

    Check-in at Windows Update ASAP & install ALL critical security updates
    offered, then see what those options offer.
