Windows 7: Default mail not properly installed

Default mail not properly installed

I have seen a couple posts on this and tried to do my homework. I have att/yahoo mail. Most of the time I can ge my e-mail from my home page (where it shows mail preview to the right). But whenever I click the "letter" that is suppose to take you to your mail box, I get a error message that states "default mail not properly installed". When I did a google search, I found someone saying to install windows live, and then change your default and another that said install Yahoo messenger and do the same. Does anyone know a simple way to fix this? I have 7 now,I did not have the same problem with vista.
