If your HP still contains the software that came preinstalled, there should be no need to install - it should already be there. If you are on Vista, Vista includes a program called Windows Mail. A Windows XP machine should have Outlook Express installed. Just go to your All Programs listing and look for the proper program. Once there, you will need to give it the information regarding your ISP/mail server & account, but typically an ISP gives you very detailed, step-by-step instructions to help with this. In the alternative, HP also includes an online chat option in the support window on your machine, and they can guide you exactly to the specific features of your machine.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level.

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.

When i try to open my mail box it shows application not found


Do you have an e-mail client installed? If it was, then something told the operating system to disassociate e-mails from that application. If you don't have an e-mail client installed, then pick one (Outlook, Thunderbird, old Navigator, and many others) and install it. But make sure the operating system associates your e-mail files with your new client. In Windows, the icon should change to something like an envelope. MacOS has something similar.

In Windows, you have two options to reestablish the link between e-mail files and the client.
#1. place your mouse over the e-mail file, then press the right mouse button (or which ever is NOT the normal selection button). Look for a drop down menu option that says "Open with ..." which should show you a list of installed applications. Your e-mail client should be in that list. If not, then click the "Browse" button (lower left section), and find your original e-mail client program.
#2. Start your e-mail client (should still be in the START-->All menu (or sub) somewhere). It will probably ask if you want it to become the default for all e-mails. If not, go to Preferences (usually under Tools, but might be under Edit), and (usually) Advanced tab/listing, and find something that says "make XXX (program name) the default...", and then save the new setting.

Good luck. (Since you didn't provide the operating system name or possible installed e-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)

HP scanner default email is Outlook Express I use Gmail


Gmail is an e-mail service, not a client (program used to access e-mail). In order to make thie work with gmail, you would need to install a different e-mail client that supports gmail, such as IncrediMail.

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.
