Hmmm, I wonder if when you uninstalled DreamMail that its uninstaller also removed WM from the list; the WM register program entries are included in the WinMail.reg which you first ran to get WM going, and so something probably from the other email uninstalls you did, removed WM along with it.
I made a quick little reg file for you to merge to see if we can get it back the easiest way, of which I also added an important line that's in the latest WimMail.reg but not in the first ones he made, and I can't remember which revision you started with and so this will make sure.
The attached registry file contents when merged will register WM letting it show up in the 'Default Programs' list if it's missing (and also associate WM Extensions, Protocols, and MAPI functions), and as well if your 'Make Default' button is unreactive and greyed out because of interference from other email client install/uninstalls, this will reactivate/bold it so that you can click it to once again to make default. (fyi, when First activating WM this is all done automatically, however for those who install/uninstall other clients after WM, sometimes these problems may occur, and so this abbreviated registry fix will restore the WM defaults without having to re-run the entire WM install process.)
Download the attached reg file below to your computer and then right click on it and click Merge (or double click). Upon a 'successful' merge, please reboot before continuing
~After you merge and reboot, please open WinMail and go to Tools> Options> General ..and if the Make Default buttons are bolded (not greyed out) ..if they are bolded then click them to 'Make Default'
~Also follow my previous message and screenshot instructions to see if Windows Mail is listed in your Default Programs again, if it is, then go ahead and do those instructions. ..good luck!
