    Thank you, this not only fixed my problem with the control panel Mail "Application not found" for outlook 2019 plus it also fixed the issue where when I right-click on a file in file explorer and select "send to" and then select "Mail Recipient", I received an error message, "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action…"

    Thank you for this topic. It helped me a lot creating mail account without starting outlook first.
    I indeed removed the pre-installed office 365 NL & EN. I didn't tought it was neccessary to use the office cleanup tool. Wrong! So reparing the register with this guidance did the job.
    Thanks again

    This worked perfectly for me! The only thing I would suggest is to ensure you have the download file for the correct (64 bit for me) install file available! I purchased mine through a third party vendor so I wasn't able to get the version I needed online, but luckily when I checked my download folder I had the install under: ProPlusRetail.img and when I opened that file, there was the installation file but that was the 32 bit file, but when I clicked on the Office folder, there was the option for Setup64.exe or Setup32.exe so I was able to install from the Setup64.exe file and everything installed perfectly and that fixed all of my office issues, including the control panel mail ability. Thanks!!!

    My Mail Icon in Control Panel shows Office 2016 even though I have 2019 installed (2016 was uninstalled including all traces with help of MS Support, but apparently some mistakes were made in the "thorough" uninstall). Also, my mail-related programs are not working since they can't find the Mail program. My Office 2019 version is 32 Bit on a Win 10 64 Bit machine. I am trying to use the Registry Fix in this article to correct the problems hopefully, but the article does not have the Default REG_SZ value for Office 2019=the latest shown is Office 2016. What is the Default REG_SZ value for Office 2019. Note that my current Default REG_SZ value is shown in the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{A0D4CD32-5D5D-4f72-BAAA-767A7AD6BAC5}\DefaultIcon as: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\MLCFG32.CPL,0 Is this the value I have to change to the value shown in this article (updated by you hopefully to show the Value for Office 2019 32 Bit on a 64 Bit machine). I am stuck until I can fix this problem, so your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      The "Default REG_SZ" value in Office 2019 is the same as in Office 2016: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\MLCFG32.CPL,0
      and you must specify it at the following registry locations:

    Does not work as there is no file called C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\MLCFG32.CPL on my PC
