Outlook Express converted to Outlook - Need to convert back to Outlook Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased Office 2010 Home and Student, which DOES NOT have Outlook.  I installed it.  It works fine.  We have always used Outlook Express for e-mail.  But when I opened Outlook Express it automatically converted to Outlook 2010 "trial" and tells me I need to purchase Outlook within 30 days.   How do I convert back to Outlook Express?

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    When you open Outlook express does it say "this is not your default email & would you like to make it so" if it does click yes. If it doesn't say this then open OE and click on tools then options and at the bottom of the "general tab" you will find a button to click that should say something like this. " This is not the default mail handler" "make default".

    Best Regards,
