Outlook 2010 is defaul client but refuses to believe it

Hi geeks.

Outlook 2010 is defaul client but refuses to believe it-outlook-error-dialog.png

It is my default mail client, everything works well. But this irritates me. Aby clues?

What other mail clients do you have on the system - one may be fouling things for outlook - have not seen this with other outlook 2010 installs

Outlook is set default. If I ever click a mailto: link, it opens Outlook. I also have Windows Live Mail installed, used with my "funny mail" Live-address. For "real" emails I use Outlook.

I didn't have this issue with 2010 Tech Preview. It started when I installed this beta and now it is always there when Outlook is launched.

However, ir is harmless. I just click it away and use Outlook normally. It's just irritating, as I said earlier.
