Windows – How to set Outlook 2010 as the default mail client

microsoft-outlookwindows 7windows-mobile

I have Office 2010 (64-bit) installed along with Windows Mobile Device Centre (64-bit) on Windows 7 Pro (64-bit). Outlook is set as the default mail client.

But for some reason, Windows Mobile Device Centre reports the following error:

"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."

Is this a known issue, or is there a fix for the problem.
