I am using Mozilla Thunderbird for my email.
When I try to import address book from Outlook I get a message saying Outlook is not my default email client ,how do I set Outlook as my default client.

On the Tools menu, click Options and then Other. Under General, select 'Make Outlook the default program for Email, Contacts and Calendar' check box.

Restart Outlook and choose to set Outlook as your default program.

Login as administrator and right click on internet explorer ,properties ,programs ,make sure outlook is default.

To set Outlook as the default mail, calendar, contacts, or news application

Start the Custom Installation Wizard. On the Modify Setup Properties panel, click the OUTLOOKASDEFAULTAPP property, and then click Modify. In the Value box, select one of the following values:

All (the default setting)

Mail Only

Mail, Calendar, Contacts

Ask user when Outlook first runs
