Old computer Win 98se – Outlook 2000
New computer XP Pro – Outlook 2007

I can send and receive Emails BUT I get the following pop up error message when I using Outlook 2007 or Internet Explore it continues to pop up every even while I am reading my new Emails

“Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfil the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Office Outlook and set it as the default mail client.?

These are the steps I have taken

Used the Transfer Wizard from Win 98 to XP Pro (Not a good idea)

Added a new *.pst

Kept and copied some old messages from 2000 to 2007 deleted rest

Deleted old pst through Options

Created new account tried every *.pst

Created new Profile tried every *.pst

Set 2007 as default in Outlook and IE 7 after every change

Any suggestions

Thank you,

johnvcn,

Have you tried to repair the installation? Please run the 'Office Diagnostics' from the help tab too.

No promises, just a hunch.

Thank You Thank You Thank You

Ran Office Diagnostics It did't find anything wrong but no more pop up message.

Funny thing Office Diagnostics created a program error report that I sent to Microsoft go figure.
