I want my default MAPI mail client to be the Windows 10 Mail App, not Outlook.

I want my default MAPI mail client to be the Windows 10 Mail App, not Outlook. When I click File > Share > Send as Attachment, I want to be able to open the Windows 10 Mail App and use this exclusively. I could not find a way to change the MAPI protocol to be set to the Windows 10 Mail App--the only choice was for Outlook Desktop. Does anyone have a solution to this, or is anyone able to provide a solid workaround?

Thanks!

Caleb

Does the mail app support the MAPI protocol? I'm not sure it does.

Unfortunately, I don't think it does--at least from what I have read online. I was hoping there was a workaround or something in the works. Or if it is a "hidden" feature, I would like to know how to uncover it.

The only work around I'm aware of would be to create your mail and attach files in the usual way, within that msg

Okay, bummer. Because going from File > Share is much easier than Attach and searching for the file. Maybe some others similarly interested have found a workaround.

Agree a bummer. Unbelievable that Microsoft would take this basic functionality away.  So frustrating.

So typical Microsoft... they never think things entirely through.  That's why so many leave this platform.
