    when i attempt to access e-mail addresses from websites I get an error message stating "cannot perform this operation because default mail client is not properly installed". Craigslist is a perfect example.w do i install my default mail client so i can click on website addresses and not get this message.

    When you click on links starts with "mailto", windows try to open an associated program for that like "Outlook" .
    If you have not any Windows Base Email Client Software installed such as "outlook" you may got this error.
    If you want to send email from a Web-Base Email Server, simply copy the Email-Addrress you clicked on before and paste it when ever you want. Just do not click on that.
