Steps to reproduce

When I click he Share button in Edge, Windows 10 Mail appears even though Outlook 2016 is set as my default e-mail app in Win10. There appears to be no way to add Outlook or remove Mail.

UPDATE by MS EDGE TEAM

We found that after setting Outlook as the default in Windows, the popup in Edge is blank, but the drafted email will appear in Outlook (screenshot attached).

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We found that after setting Outlook as the default in Windows, the popup in Edge is blank, but the drafted email will appear in Outlook (screenshot attached).

    We will investigate this behavior and see what can be done to streamline this feature.

  • Has this been fixed? I can only forward web pages from Edge using Mail, even though Outlook 2016 is my default email client.

  • “Has this been fixed?” No, it has not.

  • I have the same problem after the latest Windows 10 large update with Outlook 2010. Outlook is set as the default mail, but Edge ignores this setting and uses Windows Mail.

  • WE have Outlook 2013 as standard mail Client, but in Edge we can only choose beween Mail and Notes. Waiting for yur fix

  • Share on Edge connects to Windows 10 email app-does not appear to be a solution currently. Does not connect to Office 365 mail/Outlook
