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

I get the following pop up error message when I start Outlook 2007 and 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

Set 2007 as default in Outlook and IE 7

Still get error message

Any suggestions

Thank you,

OK found solution. Ran Office Diagnostics. It didn't find anything wrong but error message does not pop up anymore and to top it all off bleeping Microsoft said there was an error in diagnostic program and did I want to send the error report.
