Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Answer

A:

Assuming Win7...

Unlike Vista & WinXP, Win7 doesn't include a default Mail Client. [What were they thinking?]

You will have to install one (e.g., MS Outlook; Windows Live Mail; Thunderbird) and then set it as your default for Mail in the CUSTOM (<=important!) section of Set Program Access and Computer Defaults and then restart your computer before anySend To orMailTo functions will become available.

You'll find support for Win7 Mail Clients in this forum: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7network/threads 

You will find support for Windows Live Mail in this public newsgroup (at least for now): http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/list/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop 

And in Windows Live Mail Support Forums (new 08 March 2010)
