Some of you have reported you cannot click links in Outlook Express. This may be because your Outlook Express DLL files have become "de-registered", corrupted, or missing. Or it may be because you've installed another email program, made it the default, and then wanted to return to using Outlook Express. In any case here are two tips that can help you get Outlook Express working again.

Tip #1

A little background on DLL files: Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) are files that contain functions that may be shared by other programs, such as recognizing hyperlinks, displaying rich content, and so forth. These specific DLLs are used by Outlook Express, and can cause glitches in the visual display if they are damaged. Reregistering a DLL using regsvr32 is similar to reinstalling those functions and thus makes sure they are installed and working correctly.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.

3. Repeat step 1 for each of the following commands:
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll

Tip #2 (This was featured in InfoAve Premium Issue #105)

If you've ever changed default email programs and then returned to using Outlook Express you may find you're unable to click hyperlinks in email. Damaged or missing entries in the Windows registry can prevent Outlook Express from being recognized as the default e-mail client. That it turn can cause odd behavior when clicking an e-mail link to a Web page. If you are having a problem clicking links in email, follow the instructions below to re-register Outlook Express:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type msimn /reg, and then click OK.
(Note that you will not see anything happen.)

3. In Internet Explorer click Options on the Tools menu.

4. Click the Programs tab and select Outlook Express as the default e-mail client and as the default news client. You can change those later if you wish.
