In Windows Vista, when you try to send a picture by using e-mail, the Photo E-mail wizard does not send the picture. Instead, the wizard closes.
This problem occurs when you use one of the following methods:
You right-click a picture, click Send To, and then click Mail recipient.
You select a picture in Windows Photo Gallery, and then click E-mail in the taskbar.
This problem occurs because no e-mail program is set as the default e-mail program.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Classic View, and then double-click Default Programs.
Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program, select MAILTO in the Protocols list, and then click Change program.
Select the e-mail program that you want to set as the default program, and then click OK.
The default e-mail program in Windows Vista is Windows Mail. When another e-mail program is installed, it may become the default e-mail program. However, when you uninstall this e-mail program, no other e-mail program may automatically be set as the default program.
