"Fire up Outlook Express on the new machine"
Outlook Express in Windows 7 - is that even possible?
I tried Outlook 2000 on Windows 7 and whilst all the other Office 2000 apllications worked, Outlook 2000 didn't. Outlook 2003 works fine.

OR.....Try Mozilla Thunderbird, it looks and feels like Outlook/Outlook Express (email only), can import from both and will run on Windows 7 32bit and 64bit, works great (I'm using it now on 64Bit Home Premium) and best of all: ITS FREE

If you have ever tried Mozilla Firefox web browser, then you would know their product.

Here is a 90% solution (will stop the install message, but will still get a nag message the first time you start Outlook after logging in).

Use Regedit and go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\
Change the default value for Calendar, Contacts, Mail, and News to "Microsoft Outlook".

In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Microsoft Outlook entry add a Type Reg_SZ entry named "MSIComponentID" and give it a value of "{FF1D0740-D227-11D1-A4B0-006008AF820E}" .

This will stop Outlook from trying to "setup" each time, but you will still get a message about not being the default client the first time you open Outlook after each logon. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
