Outlook not default email client RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had installed office 2013 and used it for a couple of weeks.  I wanted to take it off and put office ultimate 2007 back on the PC.  I now get the 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".

    I have set it as the default, but the message still pops up.  I read about removing the registry entry and running the diagnostics and that did not work.  I read that the outlook needed to be a 32 bit version and looking at task manager it is.

    I am out of ideas.  What can I do to fix this.

    The PC has windows 7 pro on it and it is a 64-bit PC, although all application software is 32-bit.
