    Send-to mail recipient association to Outlook but should be to Mail


    I recently visited my sister and set up a new computer for her with Windows 10, MS Office 2016 professional and using the Windows Mail. She is as pleased as punch but when wanting to send jpegs to a mail recipient (and resize them accordingly) it asks her to create a new profile in Outlook.

    So I must have installed Outlook by mistake, and further it has somehow associated itself with the "send to mail recipient" function.

    The computer is in a different country so its quite a problem for me.

    First thought was to uninstall Outlook only. This does not seem to be easily possible.
    settings, app, apps and features, Office 2016..., modify - then allows only repair or uninstall. To be honest I am afraid to ask her to press the uninstall button in case it uninstalls the lot and then I have an even bigger problem!

    Will it give us the choice to uninstall only Outlook?

    Second thought was to correct the file associations.
    Settings, apps, default apps, mail is set to Mail
    set defaults by app, Mail has everything set to Mail
    set defaults by app, Outlook has the sendto function now set to Mail (but this did not help even after a restart). There are a lot of other file types/functions here which don't seem to give the option of being set to Mail.

    What can we do? Is there something in choose default applications by protocol which can be reassigned to Mail from Outlook?

    Thanks for your advice...

    :)

    ms mail in windows 10...

    How do I make Windows 10 Send To -> Mail recipient open Windows Mail?

    Currently it tries to open Outlook 2016, which I don't use.

    In default programs Windows Mail is defined as the default Email client and I also tried to look in "choose default apps by protocol" and URL:MailTo is associated with Windows Mail.

    I couldn't find how to change the .MAPIMail association.

    Send-to mail recipient association to Outlook but should be to Mail

    Hi, this is not straightforward. The Sendto mail recipient requires a MAPI compliant mail program (If you examine shell:sendto you will see MailRecipient.MAPIMail). Essentially this also requires a client that can be invoked with a parameter - and universal apps don't take parameters- they are not exe files.

    See:
    Windows 10 error - Microsoft Community
    for more discussion and find

    - it seems this offers a solution.

    Please let us know if it works. Thanks.

    Hi Dalchina,

    thanks for your help.

    Before I try to get my sister to install SendViaMailApp.exe, can you tell me if it allows the resizing of jpegs? This is the main reason for using the "send to mail recipient" otherwise one could just use the attach paperclip in Mail, (which works fine).

    Thanks again

    We're only talking about trying to fix MS's omission as regards handling email with Mail
    I use Thunderbird, so I haven't tried this fix personally; I found it for you with a search.

    The Send To feature is merely a convenience in that it saves browsing.
