Web / Email Link Not Working

  axelbrora 14:48 01 Dec 2008


When I click on any email link on any web site I get the message:

"Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed"

This happens on all web site so there must be some configuration problem between Windows Mail and IE7. I have checked all the settings in both Windows Mail and IE7 and cannot see what the problem is.

Any help would be appreciated.

Go to Start button, click Default Programs, click Set program access and computer defaults, click Custom, and under Choose Default e-mail
program: click Windows Live Mail, and click OK

Thanks, but already tried that and Windows Mail is already the default email programme.

Apologies, I had not tried that route! All is working fine now many thanks.
