    Cannot make Outlook 2016 Default Email

    I cannot make Outlook 2016 default email client. I try tru the setting...default and it looks like it is the default. Then I get an error window that says there is no email default and I should set it up in Outlook 2016. When I try it takes me back to settings...default. I am using the latest build 10162

    Ditto! The solution that worked for me was to uninstall Office 2016 and go back to Office 2013.

    It appears to be a bug in Outlook 2016. Outlook is your default, but the bug keeps reporting that it's not.

    FYI, if you install the beta 2 updates, this problem goes away.

    No, Jimbo. That's not the issue. The issue is a bug in Outlook 2016 Preview, even though you already have the defaults set. Even if you set it in both places.

    The bug is fixed in beta 2.
