    How to create a MAPI association in Windows 8.1?

    I'm using the default Windows Mail as email client in Windows 8.1.

    Besides that I'm using LibreOffice as my word processing application and get an error message when I try to use the "Send As Email" option from within a LibreOffice document. Apparently it is necessary to set an association in Windows 8.1 to use Windows Mail as default MAPI application. However, for that it would be necessary to find the actual application file for Windows Mail - and I cannot find this.

    Is it possible to create a MAPI association for Windows Mail in Windows 8.1 or could it be that Windows Mail is not a MAPI application?

    Yes. You do it in default programs. Suggest doing it from the Desktop mode. As for sending files that you have created in Libre Office. It is better to just attach the file to the email, then doing it within the program you have created the file in.

    You will also find that using Mozilla's Thunderbird is a more robust email program, then using Microsoft's Windows email.

    That is unfortunately not possible - unless I find the actual Windows Mail application (exe) file and this file is not in the Windows Mail folder that is in the Program Files folder (see enclosed screen shot).

    Do you know where I can find the Windows Mail application (exe) file?
