“No default mail client” issues
When installing Microsoft® Office 2010 on the system, the system displays an error “no default mail client”. Neither Outlook® 2010 or any other e-mail client is detected on the system by the platform. The option of choosing Outlook® does not turn up to make it a default e-mail client and thus it becomes difficult for users to choose on the default mail client.

Take a backup of all the registry files and to do that click on file and export, to the root of the computer. After finishing with the export of registry files which ensures that under no condition the registry files will be lost, move on to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWAREClientsMailMicrosoft Outlook” for 32-bit operating system. For 64-bit operating system the path will be “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE Wow6432NodeClientsMailMicrosoft Outlook”. Search the path and delete the file.
