I would add Windows Live Mail to the list.

Or, you could use a purely web-based mail service like Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo. This eliminates the need for a mail client on your PC, unless you prefer having your mail physically stored on your drive.

He could use a web based option, but this will not fix the error he is getting since no default mail client is installed. Anytime he clicks on a "mailto:<address>" link it will throw out an error unless a mail client is installed.

^True, but it is possible to set up a web-based mail client as the default.

Doesn't anybody use Outlook any more? What am I missing?

Outlook isn't free. :) 

Also, even if you buy MS Office, the cheaper versions don't always include Outlook.

You have to pay for Outlook. Outlook Express is not packaged with windows 7, nor does it run on windows 7.
