    DST and Outlook (2003)

    I downloaded the patch to update Outlook for DST changes this weekend. When I tried to install it, it told me I had to first make Outlook my default mail client. I am willing to do that for the few minutes that it takes to do the update and went in and did it. I then tried to run the patch and got the message "Either there is no default e-mail client or the current mail client can not fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the Default E-mail client".

    I then closed my normal default e-mail client (First Class Client by Open Text) and tried to run the patch again. Same message. I then reopened my normal default e-mail client and unchecked the default box. I then closed it and tried to run the patch. Same message. I went into Outlook, unchecked the box, closed Outlook, reopened Outlook and checked the box and then closed it and then rebooted. Same message. I have not yet tried uninstalling First Class and would rather not go through that as I have it highly customized and reinstalling it and recustomizing it would be very time consuming. And I have a feeling that that would not help anyway.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for this super frustrated psychologist on Long Island? <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    Try setting Outlook as your default e-mail client (temporarily, of course) in the Programs tab of Tools | Internet Options in Internet Explorer.

    Go to your Control Panel, open Internet Options and look under the Programs tab. You should be able to change your default email client there.

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Thanks. It worked. I should have thought of that. Senior moment. <img src=/S/brainwash.gif border=0 alt=brainwash width=15 height=15>

    Thanks. Mission accomplished. Now I just hope that First Class comes back as my default client. That usually takes a few tries, but I am way too familiar with that scenario. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> It is a great e-mail client but, like them all, has a few bugs that just don't seem to go away.
