    Yes, I have that too, but only on my old Surface Pro1.
    Go figure.

    Don't have that on my Surface 3 and other laptops.
    All my Windows tablets and laptops have WLM 2012 installed and it is my default in all my computers.

    I just ignore it because it has no ill effect on my WLM.

    i ignore the message as well. But, this is a new PC with a fresh Win 10 install. I don't want to see it.

    Hi jalea148.
    Could you please expand on your opening statement "email installed and set as default mail program".

    Did you install an email program like outlook or thunderbird. What did you set as default mail program, "Mail", something you installed or a browser.

    Have you tried the Clean boot process to see what is generating?

    Have you looked in event viewer or reliability history when this message occurs to see what is generating?

    You will have to look at your installed Applications, particularly what they put in at startup, and at various scheduled intervals.
    Windows 10 does not come with a Mail Client that understands certain protocols.

    If you have installed another Mail Client that also may not understand the protocol or you have not set the protocol to the Email Client, whatever that might be.

    Might also look in Control Panel, Internet Options and the Programs tab, may be a way to set it as desired. It was easy 'back then' with Outlook Express or with any installed Outlook. A lot of the problem is how programs are written to connect to installed programs, sometimes don't work with third-party software.

    Sorry this took so long. Did the clean boot and the error came up quickly, as usual. Not much of interest from the event viewer. there is no email program associated to perform the requested action-event-viewer.png. Here is the error: there is no email program associated to perform the requested action-error.png. Thunderbird is set as the default emailer.
    Thank you. Jay

    I might head into the Apps in settings, then default apps, "Set defaults by app" and find Thunderbird. Make the associations.


    If you start Control Panel through run, the User Accounts what is listed under Mail?

    I'm sure what you mean re User Accounts what is listed under Mail. There were no mail references. Same with Set defaults by app. there is no email program associated to perform the requested action-apps-defaults.png
