How to I deactivate Outlook as my email default?

I activated Outlook because a friend of mine told me that I didn't have to
have the internet to check my email if I had Outlook. I took her advice but I
still wasn't able to read my email, now I'm stook with Outlook when I go to
email something to someone if I'm online. I had internet explore sending my
email and I want it to go back to that, I don't like Outlook. I just want
things back nomal for me again.

Go to Internet Explorer - click on tools, internet options, programs tab and
choose a different email client.

No matter what mail client you use, you need an Internet connection if you
intend to check your mail. If you've already received a message and want to
look at it again, you wouldn't need to be connected at that point. Whoever
told you you needed Outlook for that was mistaken. Most mail clients let
you work offline.
