    First of all,open registry editor by opening Run window(Windows key+R), typing regedit.exe in the textbox and hitting the enter button on your keyboard. Then Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Microsoft Internet Mail Message WLMail\shell\open\command. After that Change "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe" /eml:%1 to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" /eml "%1".Once done,Restart your computer. It will fix your issue. If you are still facing any issue then feel free to ask here.It would be our pleasure to assist you.
