JSI Tip 7550. When you uninstall Office 2003 from Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, the e-mail icon on the Start menu does NOT open Outlook Express?

The subject behavior is the result of the uninstall program NOT reassigning the shortcut to Outlook Express.

To resolve the problem:

1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. Press Internet Options on the Tools menu.

3. Select the Programs tab.

4. Toggle the E-mail drop-down list and select Outlook Express.

5. Press Apply.

6. Press OK.
