Hi again,
Here is the only problem I am having with MS Office 2010, it is with Outlook.
Every time I open up Outlook, I get this message:

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

I have re-formatted several times and re-installed MS Office 2010 and configured Outlook and every time I open up to check my email I get the same message.

Outlook is set as my default mail client.
Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.

Hi, Could you just confirm that Outlok is set as the default email client by doing the following.

Vista and Windows 7

•Click Start.
•Type "default programs" in the Start Search box.
•Click Default Programs under Programs in the search results.
•Now click Set your default programs.
•Highlight Microsoft Office Outlook or Microsoft Outlook on the left.
•Click Set this program as default.
•Click OK.

Make Outlook Your Default Email Program in Windows 98, 2000, and XP
To set Outlook as your default program for email:

•Start Internet Explorer.
•Select Tools | Internet Options from the menu.
•Go to the Programs tab.
•Make sure Microsoft Office Outlook or Microsoft Outlook is selected under E-mail.
•Click OK.
