I can't find any option to setup e-mail client in Word/Excel preferences. How do I fix it?

  • Is the Office suite up to date? You might want to check for updates and check to see if the issue still exists? Aug 22, 2012 at 15:12
  • I've checked it and it's up to date.

Oh ! I think I have seen this before

Try the following:

Start Apple Mail

  1. Go to Mail>Preferences>General

  2. The top line that reads "Default Email Reader" must show either Outlook or Mail.

  3. If it doesn't, please go ahead and change it.

you might have google set as of now.

Hope this works!
