In Windows Vista, when you try to send a picture by using e-mail, the Photo E-mail wizard does not send the picture. Instead, the wizard closes.

This problem occurs when you use one of the following methods:

• You right-click a picture, click Send To, and then click Mail recipient.
• You select a picture in Windows Photo Gallery, and then click E-mail in the taskbar.

The default e-mail program in Windows Vista is Windows Mail. When another e-mail program is installed, it may become the default e-mail program. However, when you uninstall this e-mail program, no other e-mail program may automatically be set as the default program.
