Tip: no email program associated to perform the requested action

T
Hi All,

Somewhere I remember this kind of post violates the
use rules of the mozilla.support.thunderbird list,
so I am posting it here

-T


MAPI gives the following error:

    There is no email program associated to perform the requested action.
    Please install an eMail program or, if one is already installed,
    create an association in the Default Programs control panel

And "creating an association" does no good

This is a screw up in the Windows registry.  The current user's default
MAPI association is missing.

The following will restore Thunderbird as the user's MAPI association:


REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\Mail]
@="Mozilla Thunderbird"
