Everytime I try to contact a company through their website "email us" button
this tries to open up outlook express 2003, instead of windows mail. Windows
mail is the default mail handler for my computer. How do I get these "email
us" buttons to open up Windows mail?

The message I get when it tries to open up Outlook express is "Cannot open
Microsoft Office Outlook. MAPI32,DLL is corrupt or the wrong version. This
could have been caused by installing other messaging software. Please
reinstall Outlook."

I have tried uninstalling Office Outlook express, reinstalling Outlook and
none of this has made any difference.

Help!
