    I try using auto config for Outlook Express I followed the directons that popup and all it did was opened the reg file.

    Any Ideas?

    The auto config does not work as it is. Manual setup the account in your outlook will be the best way.

    I've never once had a problem with OE autoconfig. Individuals use it all the time, so stating "it doesn't work as it is" is an incorrect statement.
    In fact, I just tried this on a couple of servers and all worked just fine.

    As to the original problem:
    You have something associated with registry files that should not be. Most likely this is a .key or .reg association. Do the following and this should work fine
    Save the registry key when you're prompted

    From the start menu, click on the run command
    When prompted, type in regedit

    When regedit opens up, click on File, and select Import
    Import your saved key

    You should have OE/Outlook configured from there

    I was in search of a solution as well, It seems that both statements here are correct, I could be wrong but after just looking at the problem, the issue seems to be with ssl enabled for cpanel. If you dont have ssl enabled, it seems to work fine, but if you do, then it doesnt seem to work well, I am looking for a solution in the code now.

    But that should start pointing someone in the right direction, It does NOT work with ssl enabled, It works great without it.

    Ok, I know this is a temp fix but it does work.

    You will find these lines in /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/mail/clientconf.html

    Heres my work around:

    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=imap&app=outlook">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook&reg; for IMAP Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=pop3&app=outlook">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook&reg; for POP3 Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=imap&app=outlookexpress">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook Express&reg; for IMAP Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=pop3&app=outlookexpress">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook Express&reg; for POP3 Access</a><br>

    Now overwrite that with:

    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="http://<cpanel print="$ENV{'HTTP_HOST'}">:2082/frontend/x/mail/email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=imap&app=outlook">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook&reg; for IMAP Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="http://<cpanel print="$ENV{'HTTP_HOST'}">:2082/frontend/x/mail/email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=pop3&app=outlook">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook&reg; for POP3 Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="http://<cpanel print="$ENV{'HTTP_HOST'}">:2082/frontend/x/mail/email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=imap&app=outlookexpress">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook Express&reg; for IMAP Access</a><br>
    <a onClick="regpop('<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">');" href="http://<cpanel print="$ENV{'HTTP_HOST'}">:2082/frontend/x/mail/email.reg?acct=<cpanel print="$FORM{'acct'}">&type=pop3&app=outlookexpress">Auto-Configure Microsoft Outlook Express&reg; for POP3 Access</a><br>

    Its a work around, I am waiting for a valid fix, after hours of searching for the code to fix the actual issue, this is what I have managed to come up with.
