Replacing OE with Outlook
Re: Win XP SP3
Whenever I install a system update, Outlook becomes the mail program by
default and I have to manually change back to OE. Now, I would like to use
Outlook instead of OE but I don't know how to do it. I need some guidance.
Where do you get stuck?
When you start Outlook you are prompted to fill out your mail account
details. If not, use the Tools-> Account Settings... menu instead.
If you do not want the fact that Outlook becomes the default, you can simply
uninstall Outlook if you do not intend to use it.

Somebody please tell me that there is an option to remove the rather
redundant icon Outlook 2003 places in the system tray area! I've been

rid of it.
You can't get rid of it. You can however hide it. Just right click the Task
Bar. Choose Properties. Choose Customize. You can set the Outlook Icon to
always hide (in Windows XP only).

Is it a bug in the Outlook sales installation package ?
