.eml messages

I recently installed an update and now have Windows Live Mail on my system. 
It has taken over for showing any .eml messages I receive. I use Outlook 
Express and like it. I do not want this change. How can I get .eml messages 
to show in Outlook Express like they used to? I have used the file "type" tab 
under "folder options", but that does not work.

Windows Live Mail is an option, not an update. If you don't want it, 
remove it.

Uninstall Windows Live Mail
 Add-Remove Programs/Windows Live Essentials/
 - uncheck Windows Live Mail

Reset OE as your default email client in Windows XP,  OE and IE's properties(see Bruce's response for specifics)

Ensure you uncheck Windows Live Mail if prompted in Windows/Microsoft Update(look under the Optional section)

v 10 RM void-incorrect message
Hi Folks In GP v 10 with SP1 I have found that if I want to void an RM transaction I am getting the message telling me that the entry did not originate in RM and do I want to continue.

Cannot send encrypted messages in a mixed-mode environment.
This is the case... We're running an 5.5 exchange and one exchange2003 server in a mixed-mode environment. We're using an linux server running sendmail as the smtp-server. Everything works fine, but it seems that as long as we're using the internet mail connector in our 5.5. server all external e-mails from the 2003 server goes through x400 to the 5.5 server and then uses the 5.5.'s servers internet mail connector to send the e-mail.

Messages not decoded correctly
I have a situation with at least two machines running Outlook 2007 against Exchange Server. A small number of messages are not being decoded correctly when Outlook receives them so they can not be read properly. If the message is re-sent from the originator, it is usually OK. The received messages contain the mime information, e.g. This is a multi-part message in MIME format. ------_=_NextPart_001_01C9D24C.74CCA6DC Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="----_=_NextPart_002_01C9D24C.74CCA6DC" And the raw mime encoding.
