Dear Brink. Thank you for your respond. I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that I don't want Windows Mail either. I want Outlook 2003 as a default mail client. Vista doesn’t show Outlook 2003 in Set Your Default Programs panel.

Thank you, Brink. I’m sorry I should have mentioned that I don’t want Windows Mail either.
I used to have Outlook Express as a default mail client, until I installed Live Mail. I still need Live Mail for its picture mail future, but I don’t want to have it as a default. I’ve tried to change association of file protocol and it doesn’t work because Outlook express is not listed in there. It’s also not listed under Set Your Default Program.
I think the only way to fix it is through the Registry.
Thanks

You can't use Outlook Express in Vista.
If you want to use Outlook 2003 as you stated in another post, just install
it. It will set itself as the default email program.

Yes, I can. Outlook 2003 was the default e-mail client untill I accidentaly pushed the button when Live Mail asked me if I want to make it default program. I uninstalled Live Mail and got Outlook back as a default mail program. Than I installed Live Mail and it took over Outlook again. I went to Live Mail options. It says "this aplication is the default mail handler". There is now way to change it. I'm sure, there is way to fix it through the registry. I would appreciate it if you can help me.

Thank you, Brink. I haven't seen what was in the link.
I tried both Methods: Run Outlook as Administrator & Reinstalled Outlook. Neither one worked. Is there anything else I can try?

The newsgroup to which you posted is dedicated to the Windows Mail
program. You really need to be asking these questions in an Outlook
newsgroup where the Outlook experts hang out:

My question was about Windows Live and Vista settings since they both took over Outlook. I don't think Outlook experts will be able to help me with Windows Live Mail program. Anyway, thanks for your respond

On January 29 you said "I want Outlook 2003 as a default mail client."

On February 2 you said you tried "Run Outlook as Administrator & Reinstalled
Outlook". Since you are having problems with Outlook, Gary explained that
you need to get help with Outlook from Outlook experts.

It is not true that "they both took over Outlook". Perhaps you mean Outlook
Express, and if so, then it will help if you are accurate and don't blame
Gary if you are confused. You can blame Microsoft for being confusing but
complaining here won't accomplish anything.

I didn't mean to blame anybody here and I apreciate what you are doing here.
I won't bother you anymore since I fixed it. Let me explain what I have done, for those, who may have the same problem.
I was sure that I'm having problem with Outlook because of Live Mail application and I was right. I uninstalled Windows Live Mail. Removed all Windows Live Mail files and folders, cleaned all registries from Windows Live Mail. And than I reinstalled it. Now I can choose wheather I want or not to make it default mail program.
Thanks again for being patient. I have language disability :)
