"Either there is not defult 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 done what is recommended in this article, no luck;

Microsoft recommends sticking with Office 32-bit for now. Unless you need the features of 64-bit like 2GB or large Excel spreadsheets. Most third party software and plug-ins are not Office 64-bit compatible. And remember technically it's a first release product.

I have had the exact same scenario, and there is no fix yet apart from uninstalling your 64 bit office and reinstalling 32 bit Office 2010, worked for me. Pretty annoying though I might add.

Very annoying, not sure how a product is released with this enormous bug.

I must admit I do not use the feature myself, usually open a new emailand attach from there, however the issue is affecting some of the 50 add laptops deployed with this configuration.

Thanks for the info.
