Your default mail client would be Outlook if you have installed Office.
Did you actually have a mail client working at any stage?

What version of Office do you have (2003, 2007 or 2010)?

Do you have the install disk for your version? If so try reinstalling Outlook again and ensure a full install.

Hi Mike - I don't use Outlook - Eclipse webmail instead. This has only happened on my new laptop & Win7 with Office 2010. My old laptop and XP was ok.

OK, it looks like perhaps, links are directing to 'Outlook'. If you don't want use a client but instead use webmail, then disable 'outlook' as the default client (or any other come to that). That will bring you back to webmail only

I have Office Home & Student Win 7 so Outlook not included. There is Windows Live Mail but I haven't activated it. Maybe it's something I need to do in Eclipse Webmail, or in IE??
