Need to install "default mail client" properlly


That all depends on what mail client you wish to install.
If you wish to use Microsoft, to to the microsoft site and download and install Windows Live Mail. Once you download it and let it install, it will work.
You apparently have a corrupt mail client on your system.

Cannot send/recieve mail outlook express


If you have installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, it will set itself as your default mail client. Hit the Windows ball or Start button on the lower left of the desktop - All Programs - Outlook Express. When it opens; hit File - Export - To Outlook (Messages). Outlook Express will export all of your messages, contacts and account settings to Outlook 2007 and you will be able to use the better, upgraded Outlook Mail client.

How to connect yahoo mail using windows mail in Windows 7


You cannot configure Yahoo account with Windows live mail.
And the reason you are getting the error because you have Micosoft outlook in the pc and that email client (MS outlook) is not configured with your yahoo mail and it is not the default email client in your PC. Windows live mail is the default email client in your PC and you cannot configure Yahoo account in windows live mail.

When I go to a website and have a Point of contact email there , I try to write them and all I get is this" could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed"


Hi, Sorry for the Late Reply. Mails have gone in to the Spam Folder.
HandyTEchT has already posted the solution. That is the way to do it. Some additions: What happens when you click on the link is the Website will Invoke the Default Mail Client in your Machine. I think you have already installed one. You have to
  • Either do Configure the Software (Mail Client - But I don't think its available free for Yahoo to allow Send via a Mail Client. They have a Paid version for such Access).
  • Or You can Configure the Browser to use the "Default Mail Client". That is the easiest way. If you want to use Yahoo mail, here is how to do that (then it will automatically Redirect to the Default Mail Client - Yahoo Mail this time):
  1. This is for IE7 and Upwards.
  • Click on "Tools" menu and go to "Internet Options"
  • Go to "Programs Tab"
  • Drop Down the box for the Setting "E-mail:"
  • Select "Yahoo Mail"
  • Thats all what you have to do! "Click on "OK" button.
  • Note: If you don't have that in the List, Please download and Install the "Yahoo Toolbar"
  • It will ask you for some settings prior to the Installation (Some check boxes).
  • The last option has to be selected which is "Install the Yahoo! Mail Plug-in and make Yahoo! Mail my default Mail provider".
  • Restart the Browser
  • Thats all!
2. If you use Firefox:
  • Go to "Tools" and then Select "Options"
  • Go to "Applications" Tab.
  • Scroll until you find "mailto"
  • Drop the Box down and Select, "Yahoo Mail".
  • Thats all! Click on "OK".

Default mail client


It sounds like you are trying to click on a hyperlink to email someone, like at a website. These hyperlinks are programmed to open an email client like Outlook, or Outlook Express and open a new mail message with the email address line populated.

If you are using a WEB based email like Yahoo, Hotmail and the like, then the hyperlink will not work, and you get the error you describe. Generally it isn't worth the time and effort to setup an email client if that is the only reason you are doing it.

SO, generally, I just open my email, then type the email address of the hyperlink (Support@dell.com for example)

Default Mail Client


Have you ever had Outlook configured correctly to access your email server and download messages?
It sounds like you have set outlook as the default email client but you have not yet configured the email account settings within outlook so that outlook knows how to connect to your mail server online.
Please refer to this link or this link for instructions on how to do this.
Check the programs tab of Internet Options in control panel and make sure Outlook appears as the default email client.

If you follow the instructions in this tutorial you should be able to enter your administrative account and ensure that the Office Diagnostics program runs with sufficient privileges...I believe that will correct this error message...
If not, If you have correctly configured your email accounts within outlook and outlook is set as the default, please see this posting and the recommended change to correct the situation.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

No synchronization when Outlook express is default mail program


Email synch is based on current MAPI preferences. The problem you have is that the VersaMail conduit assumes your mail client must be the MAPI default email client. You could adopt another profile in Outlook instead of OExpress which picks up the account you use in OE. This is the first instance of this problem I have ever heard of so I doubt if PalmOne would make a software change on this.
