Can't forward a email from a attachment

Posted

I keep getting this message when I try and perform a certain task. When right click on a folder or file from an attachment I get in a email, and then I click on the option available, send to a email address, I keep this same message or the email box, that says "There is no email program associated to perform to perform the requested action. Please install a email program or, if one is already installed, create an associated in the Default Programs control panel". It seems no mater how I try I just can't create an associated email in the control panel. Yes. this may be a Windows issue, but I was hoping Firefox would help instead, or at least have a suggestion. Firefox responds so much quicker.

My_Cheese_Is_Slippen, thank you for your reply. Frankly, when I access that page, it seems everything is OK with my email functions. I use Yahoo and it states Yahoo is my assigned default email client. So, just can't figure out why I keep getting a message asking to assign a email address to this program, when I try and send a attachment folder/file when I already have one?

I'm pretty sure my issue is not a site issue. Again, probably a Windows problem. Just thought Firefox might know a fix. Thank you My_Cheese_Is_Slippin.

Hi sciencemagic, Guess what! I have a similar issue with Win 10! When I right click on an image and select Send To -> Mail Recipient I get a window where I can select a size and then Attach. After I select Attach, I get the same error message. All of the 'solutions' are to delete Microsoft Outlook from a Registry entry and select a new default mail app. I, however, don't have an Outlook entry to delete. What I need to do in Win 10 is to right click on the image file and select Share. Then I can select a contact or an app to share the file. I don't remember if the Share option is in the Win 7 context menu but, it might be worth looking into.

I don't recall seeing that option in Win 7. I guess I will have to ask for Win 7 help to resolve the problem. Strange, but I thought I did something like that earlier to try and resolve the same problem?
