To send, receive, read, and compose emails on a computer, you need an email client. Desktop email clients diverge slightly from web-based ones. Desktop email clients are programmes that must be downloaded and installed on a computer.

Instead of using your browser to read and respond to email, as you would with a web-based client, you may do so without ever leaving the app. Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird are the two most popular desktop email programmes.

In addition to reading, composing, and sending and receiving emails, each of these clients comes with its own unique set of capabilities that allow you to organise and sync your emails across numerous platforms.

There is No EMail Program Associated To Perform The Requested Action

Sending documents directly from File Explorer is a breeze when you use the context menu’s Send To option and choose Mail receipt as the delivery method.

It’s a quick and painless way to send large attachments via email. However, the Send To option may fail to work in certain circumstances, resulting in an error message.
