Use Windows 10 Mail App Instead of Outlook With File/Share/Email

I have installed Windows 10 and Office 2016.

I use the Windows Mail app that came with Windows because it works both with my Windows corporate exchange email as well as Gmail.

When working with a file in Powerpoint, Excel, and Word, and I select File / Share / Email to attach the file to an email.  I want the Mail app to open, not Outlook.

How do I do this?

Thanks,

Mike Fife

Answer

The send to option has always required a mapi mail client, which the mail app is not.

The Mail App is a basic mail client similar to Outlook Express or WLM
