Establishing a mail client

I want to email some pictures, however, I get the message I have not established a default mail client.  What does this mean and how do I do it?

You do not need an e-mail client to send pictures. You should be able to send pictures with Comcast web mail. Open an e-mail, click attach and go.

FYI: An e-mail client is a separate program such as Apple mail, Outlook, Thunderbird ect. that you can use to manage your mail. You never need to use one of those, but many people like their features.

Are you trying to send the email by using a "Mailto:" link at a website?  Because those will generate that notice if you don't have an email client configured on your computer with your email account in it.  But as Barbie said, if you are sending photos that are on your computer you don't need a client to do that.

Thank you for your response.  I have been able to send pictures through Comcast Web however, I am trying to send pictures using a Sony Program called "Play Memories Home" and when I select email, it tells me I need to establish a mail client.  How do I establish a mail client with Comcast using that program?

Just install one of the many free e-mail clients, then select it in your program.

If you don't want to download a desktop client, there is a way to use a webmail account for your mailto: function.  See here----------------

I haven't tried this method myself though.  The article is about two years old and with all the browser updates the navigation might be a little different now.
