Default could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed

Hi
I have WINXP Home SP2 with OE 6
Whenever I click on an e-mail link on a website, I get a pop up window with
the following message:

could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not
properly installed.

How do I fix this so that I can e-mail directly from their link. This
happens everytime.
Thanks in advance.

From http://www.fjsmjs.com/OE/defaultl.htm

Go to Start | Run and type this command, with the double quotes and spaces:

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg

and then make sure that OE is selected as the default mail program in both
IE and OE.

If that isn't enough, see this article:
