Question Info

Last updated May 13, 2018 Views 7,303 Applies to:

This error occurs if

  • Windows Live Mail is set as the default mail client;
  • A Hotmail-type account (any account, including those on domains like hotmail.*, live.* and, that uses the Hotmail interface for webmail) is set as the default mail account;
  • That account is configured to use HTTP;
  • Windows Live Mail is not running when it is invoked by a sendmail or mailto command, like by clicking a link on a web page.

This may have been corrected in the latest version of the program (build 15.4.3508.1109 16.4.3528.0331) available from the download site.

To work around the problem, ensure that Windows Live Mail is running before clicking a Contact us link or using the browser's or other application's Send by e-mail function.

Windows Live Mail has its own dedicated forums at the Windows Live Solution Center. Please direct any further questions you may have to one of the forums on the right-hand side of this page.
