Q. How do I set up MS OUTLOOK as my email client in GOOGLE CHROME?
I want to be able to link to my OUTLOOK email client the same way you do in IE9, by clicking on the envelope icon, which takes you right to OUTLOOK.

If that does not work right away, open Outlook and make sure it is set as default Handler.
Chrome allows web services to ask if you’d like to use them to open certain links. While most links generally take you to another page, some links can open programs and perform other actions. For example, mailto: links can open your email program and webcal: links can add events to your calendar program. These links are referred to as protocols and the programs they use are called handlers. Many web services these days, including Gmail and Google Calendar, can act as handlers.
For example, when you open Gmail in Chrome, a protocol handler icon may appear in the omnibox next to the star bookmarks icon. Click it to show the following options:
By default, web services are allowed to show messages about protocol links when you visit their sites. To disable or re-enable these messages in Chrome, follow the steps below.
Use the Settings page to manage the web services you’ve allowed to act as handlers.Choose a default handler
If for some reason you’d like to use a different handler to open a link on a page, right-click the link and select “Open link with” to choose a handler. Your default handler settings won’t be affected.
