Make Outlook Express default email client

RE: Make Outlook Express default email client
When I try to make OE the default mail client, the box in Tools > Options > General is greyed out. Do you know what I am doing wrong?

Also when I try to set OE as the MAILTO protocol in the control panel, there is no MAILTO option listed.

When it's grayed out, it means that it is already set default. Mailto should be there if you click "Choose defaults for this program". If not, please reinstall (no need to uninstall first)

To make Outlook Express default email program go to Tools>Options and click on "Make Default" button and the "Apply"

The second step is from Control Panel. Open you control panel and go to Default Programs>Set Default programs. Click on Outlook Express and then "Set this program as default"

At the second step, "Outlook Express" is not one of the choices in the list of programs. How do I get it into the list?
