Open your registry and find the key below.

Create a new string value, or modify the existing value, to equal the title you would like.

For Outlook Express 5.0 and 6.0 the location of the key has changed to: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{** Identity ID **}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0]

Note: Delete the value of 'WindowTitle' to change the title back to the default.
