Email: When I click an email link it opens up Windows Mail not Outlook 2016

Windows Mail is the default email client for Windows 10. When Office 2016 is installed this is supposed to be changed to Outlook 2016. Sometime this default association can be lost. To restore it, type "Default Applications" on the Start Menu. This will open the list of default applications on your computer. Select Mail at the top and when the list expands select Outlook 2016.
