OUTLOOK and IE

I love K=meleon. I have set it as my default browser, both within the program and on my control panel. However when I click a link in outlook express, it tries to open in IE. How can I stop this? I'm using K-Meleon to get away from IE.

Thanks for any help.

@ Kaylee

I had the same problem. It requires that you set the associations for a couple of filetypes to point to K-Meleon. The filetypes that you must set are 'htm' and 'html'. In my windows 7 ops system, that is found in control panel, set defaults, set associations. I am not sure if the same wording for the action is used in XP or other operating systems. However you should be able to find it from the control panel. If you cannot find it, post here again and tell us your operating system.

Kaylee,

IF you are using XP (not sure about Windows 7), you can use setbrowser to force windows to use your choice of browser.

Hint: when you look at the choices, pick Netscape, then make sure to pick the location using the dialog box (for K-Meleon or any other Gecko browser, such as Firefox or SeaMonkey).
