I am running Office 2000 Premium Edition on Windows Vista and I am able to receive e-mails in Outlook but I cannot send anything. When I attemp to send an e-mail I get a message saying "An error occured while attempting to open the Windows Address Book. Unable to find the WAB DDL." Also when I open Outlook Express I get a message saying "Outlook is not currently your default manager for mail. Would you like to register Outlook as your default manager." This message continues to come up even though I click on yes. I would greatly appreciate any help that is out there. :)

This might help:

Go to:

1. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office
2. Find the OUTLOOK application.
3. Right click on it and select "Run as Administrator".


Navigate to: Start > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs

Make Outlook 2000 your default email program.

Does that help?

Unfortunately, Outlook 2000 isn't supported on Vista.
But, workarounds have been developed.

My favorite is this blog: http://miniburb.word...-windows-vista/
And this google search may help also: http://www.google.co...lient=firefox-a
