When it says it can't find a default email client, it means you don't have one installed. With Windows 7, there is no email client by default. You have to download one and install it. You can either get the Windows Live Essential pack to get Windows Mail or download Thunderbird.

Are you sure you installed Windows Mail or something else from the Windows Live Essentials package? You can just download Windows Mail at http://download.live.com/wlmail if you didn't get it.

Otherwise, go to the Start Ribbon and select Default Programs. From there, select Associate a file type or protocol with a program.

From there, scroll down to the PROTOCOLS section and set the MAILTO protocol to whatever email program you've installed.

Also as a work around until you get the issue resolved... You can just open your mail client (web based or application or whatever) and copy and paste the address into a new email message, that works too. At least for craigslist it works fine.
