- 2 ways to Repair Outlook Express -

Windows 98 -- Internet Explorer's repair option:

Click on Start / Settings / Control Panel
In Control Panel, double click on the Add/Remove Programs icon.

Scroll down and look for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 SP1 and Internet Tools or similar.
Click on it once to select it and click the Add/Remove... button.

Select Repair Internet Explorer and click the OK button.

Click the Yes button.

A progress window will appear.

Click the Yes button to restart the computer.

Last resort. If the repair above don't work try this:

  1. Use the Find option under your "Start" menu to find the file msimn.exe and make a note of the full pathname. You'll probably find that it's something like "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe". Make a note of where it actually is and then follow the rest of the instructions below.
  2. Next, make sure Outlook Express isn't running, click on Start / Run... and then enter the following:

    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg and hit "Enter".
     Note: You need to make sure you put the quotes around the flie path,
    and make sure there's a space before the /reg.

  3. Restart your computer.
This tells Outlook Express to reset its registry entries, which should allow you to set Outlook Express as your default mail client in Internet Explorer's Program options.
