Email links in web pages - mail client

When I click on an email link in a web page I get a pop up message 'Could not perform this operation because mail client is not properly installed'.

Ive searched various forums for a solution but the only thing I can find is reference to a problem with Outlook Express when clicking on email links that contain more than 450 characters - this is definately not the problem I have.

Thanks in anticipation.
