Outlook - problem with recurring error message!

Not open for further replies.


Keep getting Outlook error mesage, at regular intervals, even though I have done everything requested to set Outlook as default mail client!!! And I am able to send and recieve emails using Outlook, tied into my Yahoo account!

Pop up message:

"Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client"

You get this when doing what exactly?

Are you perhaps using the 64-bit version of Outlook 2010 or the Click-to-Run version?
Install the 32-bit version of Outlook instead; it's currently the recommended version of Outlook 2010 even when you are using a 64-bit version of Windows.

For further details see; Outlook 2010: 32-bit or 64-bit?
