Office 2010 Save and Send not working

We are just starting to migrate to Windows 7 and Office 2010 and have come across the following problem with Excel/Outlook 2010.

In Excel if I go to File > Save and Send > Send Using E-mail > Send as Attachment
I get the following error message:

save and send error
The same process in Word gives this error message:

save and send error
And in Powerpoint gives this error message:

save and send error
The errors occur whether Outlook 2010 is running or not.

Also, if from the desktop I right-click on a file > Send To > mail Recipient
Nothing happens. The attachment can only be sent from within Outlook and by 'adding' an Attachment.

This problem is happening on 2 laptops with Window 7 (64bit) + Office 2010 and 1 desktop with Windows 7 (64bit) + Office 2010. All are completely up to date with Windows updates.
I have another laptop with Windows 7 (64bit) +Office 2010 that works perfectly!!
These are all fresh installs of Windows + Office + All Updates.

Does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks for your time

Neil

Can you confirm if outlook has been set as the default program

Internet Explorer --> Tools --> Internet Option --> Programs --> Internet Programs --> set programs. Find Microsoft Outlook and then highlight and click Set this program as default

Here is another two possible fixes as well. Look at the responses from William Zhou and Bearcat_w

Here is what i have tried already:

Solution 1

1.      Click on Windows [Start]
2.      Type:   Default Programmes             in the search box
3.      Run      Default Programmes
4.      Make sure Outlook is the Default e-mail client

Solution 2

1.      Click on Windows [Start]
2.      Type    Outlook.exe     in the search box
3.      Right click       Outlook.exe     and choose Properties
4.      Compatibility Tab       Nothing should be ticked

Solution 3

1.      Click on Windows [Start]
2.      Type    fixmapi                       in the  search box
3.      Run      fixmapi

None worked.

From browsing through many forums it seems that this 'save & send' problem is not uncommon, and obviously I have not found a solution yet.

I hope that the 'Exchange Experts' can succeed where so many others have failed

Thanks again

have you tried disabling addins in Outlook?

try start > run > outlook.exe /safe and see if it helps.

This is a common error encountered when upgrading Office Suites
Quite oftem the mapi.dll's become broken or corrupt.

You simply need to close out of all office apps
Rename/delete your Mapi.dlls
Open outlook to recreate them
and you should be sweet

Many thanks apache9

Everything working well now.

It was the delete/recreating of the Microsoft Outlook subkey in the registry that fixed it.

I can't believe Microsoft have not sorted this. There seems to be hundreds of forums listing this problem and have been listing it for a least 2 years!!

Thanks again
