outlook express question

I have Yahoo and internet explorerer,using windows XP sp2 and when i try to send mail to somebody from a web site outlook express pops open,when i want to use my yahoo mail
for sending. I can copy the e-mail on a piece of paper then open up yahoo mail and put the address in the 'send' . column.
I just noticed this on my new computer,my old one functioned o.k.
Is there some setting i can change outlook express to yahoo?
Thanks

In IE you have outlook set as your default mailer.
GO to TOOL/INTERNET OPTION/PROGRAMS and delete outlook from the default mailer.
I don't know if you can default a web mail service in there. I have never tried.

Remove (uninstall) Outlook Express from your PC. There is no reason to have it installed in the first place. It's a poorly written abomination, and nobody who knows what they are doing uses it.

I got into outlook express and read how to uninstall the program. I got all kinds of cautions and warnings about trying to uninstall or make changes. One warning was that other sytem programs need this installation. I think i'll let well enough alone.

Nothing on your PC needs Outlook Express. Nobody owning a PC needs Outlook Express.

Outlook Express serves no purpose except for Microsoft to be able to say that have a "free" email program.
