windows mail not sending emails.

So this is my problem , I normally use thunderbird for emails but sometimes if I click on an email contact us address on a web page the windows mail program opens. I suspected that sent emails were not arriving so I sent one to myself using the program and it did not arrive. The mail program does not seem to have a sent box unless I cant find it.

The only work around I can do is when the mail program opens I have to copy paste the email address into thunderbird.

Apart from uninstalling the mail/calendar program does anyone know how to stop mail opening up and also why is it not sending the emails.

If you use Thunderbird then why don't you set that as your default mail app in Windows 10? Right-click on the windows logo bottom left, in search type in default apps and there you will see the option to choose Thunderbird as your default mail client.
