Many programs can send information as an email message. For example, you can send a spreadsheet to a mail recipient in Microsoft Excel, or click an email link on a webpage. If you have more than one email application on your computer, the only way to make sure these actions use a particular application, such as Outlook, is to set it as your default program.
The following steps remove
Microsoft Outlook 2010 as your default mail program.
Please note that this will only remove Outlook as the default client.
- Click the File tab.
- Click Options.
- Under Start up options, select the Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar UNCHECK the box.
I have to chime in here, I don't have Office 2010 installed on this computer, but I was having a similar issue with Office 2007. When ever I clicked on an email address, by Default, Outlook 2007 would start up. I didn't want that, as I no longer use my Blackberry and Outlook/office as my email. I now use a Droid and Gmail. So, what I had to do, since trying to change my Default Programs wouldn't work. I had to open Office 2007, Go to TOOLS, ACCOUNT SETTINGS
, and Delete my SBC email address that was there, and now by default, my Gmail is my default email address. I could still recieve and send emails in Outlook if I wanted to, but no longer by default...
Update: I can't receive or send emails..I have to fix it now...but does anyone know how to change it for 2007?
