How do I make Windows Live my default e-mail

February 3, 2011 at 12:09:02
Specs: Windows 7
Windows Live is my e-mail account and have Windows 7 Home Premium. Suddenly Microsoft Office Outlook started popping up saying Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the message request. I have gone into Setup Default Programs and Default Programs checked Windows Live and after checking ok it goes back to microsoft. I have gone into Default Programs and Windows Live Mail is not in the list. How do I make it stop popping up and accept Windows Live? I have had Windows Live mail for a year and this pop up just started 2 weeks ago.

When you open your Windows Live Mail(left column)
Right click your email address name -
When the list opens - Left click - Set as Default Account.

When I right click my email address the set as default mail is grayed out, but there is already a check mark next to it. It seems like my problem started when I installed the new version of Norton 360. I had Norton 360 last year and didn't have any problems with the 2010 version.

If you can find a listing for Microsoft Office Outlook than uninstall it.
Start - Control Panel - Program and Features
Try doing a search for it.
As for when you open Windows Live Mail and the check mark for
Set as Default is grayed out, that's the way it should be.
