I have office 2007 & I wish to purge outlook from my life. I have never used it & I never will but Gates forces it on me. I have put up with problems with Outlook for years & I have NEVER used it. When I clicked the link to email someone in Craigslist the Outlook email showed up. I use hotmail. I uninstalled Office 2007 & reinstalled it without Outlook. Now when I click the email link in Craigslist I get the message stated above. I checked the default programs & there is none pertaining to mail. Can you please help me & I have no idea why I am having to ask for help with this issue as it should have already been addressed. Also I have a Profile already but when I sign in as instructed I cannot use my current Profile. It states that profile is already in use. NO KIDDING! Help is appreciated.

I appreciateyour assistance. As I mentioned I uninstalled Office 2007 & reinstalled it excluding Outlook.

FROM PREVIOUS FACTS - When I clicked the link to email someone in Craigslist the Outlook email showed up. I use hotmail. I uninstalled Office 2007 & reinstalled it without Outlook. Now when I click the email link in Craigslist I get the message stated above. I checked the default programs & there is none pertaining to mail.

I am missing something as I cannot UNINSTALL Outlook without UNINSTALLING the entire OFFICE 2007.

Thanks for your time. Larry

You are certainly missing something. In Control Panel-Uinstall a Program, hightlight Office, click on Change and then Add/Remove Office Components. There you can make Outlook unavailable (that's how you uninstall Outlook without removing the rest of Office)

AFAIK you cannot make Web based Hotmail your default Email without (I think - I'm not using Windows right now) installing Windows Live Toolbar in IE...

If you haven't observed, live hotmail has changed, and has incorporated access to outlook as a way around many of outlooks quirks, if you have a email address associated with outlook to a third party server so outlook actually functions, you can add that email to your live hotmail account, and never open or use outlook.

And will also let you access your office word programs, documents.......without outlook set up why do you need a office program ?

You could of saved a couple of hundred bucks and used microsoft works task launcher for free.

Go to your control panel, click on default programs.

Select set program access and computer defaults,

Click the down arrow on the custom line,

Uncheck where it says choose default email program, and save.

The rest you can accomplish from your live hotmail account, selecting options and more options and then advanced options.

You are right. I feel a little embarrased about not seeing that. I have used a computer for many many years & I have never had to use the top line features & that is why I missed it. You are also right that I cannot use Hotmail for webpages as I need an email client. Thanks for your assistance & time. Larry
