    "Either there is no default mail client" Error

    Periodically, I'm getting the following error message appear out of nowhere on my machine:

    "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request"

    I'm running Outlook 2010 64 Bit on Windows 7 (Professional) 64 Bit.

    It's getting really annoying. How can I get rid of it for good?

    It is likely that a 32-bit third party program is not compatible with 64-bit Outlook. Unfortunately from what I can find out the only solution is to uninstall the 64-bit version of Office and install the 32-bit version. Office is not the problem. It is the third party programs that do not "see" 64-bit Office only 32-bit.

    I have read reports that this was solved by Office 2010 SP1. You may want to install SP1 to solve it.
