I had the same problem such that only Outlook was recognized as the default Email app.
I uninstalled Outlook, and selected Microsoft mail as the default.
In the Send to response was "no email associated". What has Microsoft done? ( This used to work well in Windows 10).

just upgraded to windows 10 and this issue has been bugging me, but i found the following solution:
1. set thunderbird as your default mail client
2. run regedit
3. navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Clients\Mail
4. change the value of (Default) from "Microsoft Outlook" to "Mozilla Thunderbird"

The only workaround to this issue currently is to choose "Share" in the right click context menu instead of "Send To". By clicking "Share" it will open the following dialogue which will then enable you to choose the default 'Mail' app. I've been using this for quite a while now and it works really well.
