Windows 7: Outlook 2003 Issue

Windows 7 32 bit
Outlook 2003 Issue

I'm now using Windows 7 32 bit with Outlook 2003. When in Outlook, if I click on an email address, instead of launching my outlook editor (word) to send a message, it pops up a "Locate Link Browser" window. Can't seem to figure out how to get this to work correctly. Any ideas? Thanks -

This should help:
The Locate Link Browser dialog box appears when you open a Web link in an e-mail message in Outlook 2003

To resolve this problem change the registered file type for the URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol file type to use Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the desktop, double-click My Computer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.
  3. In the Registered File Types list, click URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol, click Advanced, and then click Edit.
  4. In the Actions box, type open.
  5. In the Application used to perform action box, locate Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe), and then click Open.
  6. In the Application box, type IExplore, and then click OK.

Thanks Irene, but that doesn't do it. It's not web links I can't get to it's email address links. Any thoughts on that aspect?
