There is no email program associated to perform the requested action


K

I'm new to windows 7, and can't solve this irritating problem. When opening
several different programs, I get the error ..

"There is no email program associated to perform the requested action"

Along with some verbage about installing an email client and configuring
it's default file types.

I have Windows live mail installed, and checked that it is configured as the
default client for the usual file types.

Can anybody suggest how to get rid of these annoying messages? On this
occassion Google has let me down :(

No until you consent to tell us about these mysterious secret "several
different programs."

Memeo Instant backup is the one that triggered my post, but it comes up
sporadically with a couple of other programs, I can't remember which ones
just now, just that it was odd that they would need email anyway.

Most backup programs have a feature that will email logs or error
reports to admins or interested parties. I'm guessing you have that
feature turned on but not configured.

And/or your application may require a MAPI compliant mail agent to do
its thing. WLM isn't MAPI compliant.

It works with both AOL and GMail MAPI. Does that count?

Have you clicked the Start orb, then type "set default programs"? The
window that opens will tell you whether the email defaults have been
set and will offer to let you adjust those defaults, if desired.

When I open "Set Default Programs," the programs I want to set are not
listed and there is no way I can see to add programs to the list.

Which program, and which default action, are you trying to add? I
expect there are other ways to accomplish it, such as from within the
new program itself or perhaps via file types.

Yes, there are other ways, but they shouldn't be necessary for selecting
the default mail program or text editor. I use FileTypesMan from NirSoft.

I've rechecked that Live Mail is the default mail handler, and all the boxes
for the default file types are checked. Still getting the nag screen :(
And before anyone pipes up, I am looking for a better newsreader! Any
suggest for an alternative email program are also welcome :)

I don't know if it's worth it to try to get the names of those
programs and track down the issues. It's probably best to just move on
to a better program.

Thunderbird seems to be very popular and gets mentioned here
frequently. I use Outlook 2003 for email and Agent 2.0 for text
newsgroups, but what's best for you will depend on your own wants and
needs. Some are free, almost all of the rest have free trials, so try
as many as you have time for and see what you like.

Are you sure the message isn't from the program that is complaining?

Thunderbird is a good choice, also Eudora and PostBox which are both
based on Thunderbird. Not only do these do email, they are also
newsreaders.

I had this message to when trying to attach anything to an email, could not find an answer anywhere. I then changed permissions to full control in mail and now I can attach anything, no more messages, nothing
