Every time I double click on an email address it autmatically opens up an Microsoft Mail window asking me to sign up... I didn't want to.

Is there a setting I can change to make Outlook thge default system.

Thanks for your help.

BTW, there should be a checkbox to set Outlook as default in File, Options, General - at the bottom.
