Changing Default Email Client - Choose Profile?

I've configured a fillable pdf document with an automated email address submission button, which all seems to be working just fine. However, when I test it, Windows doesn't seem to know which default email client to use for email purposes.

I know that to change your default email client you:

1) The settings are located in Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Set Programs Access and Defaults>Custom
2) Click the arrows pointing down to expand the Custom entry.
3) The email programs you have installed on your computer should be listed here. Place a check next to your preferred email client.
4) Press the OK button.
5) Exit the Control Panel.

My setting appears to be correctly set to Mozilla Thunderbird, but when I invoke the Submit (email) button on my pdf form, I get:

What additional tweak(s) do I need to make from here to integrate my email client ( I could have sworn I was done . . .). Thanks!

@CDobyns,
This posting has elicited a surprising absence of replies, so I thought I would try to resurface it, and append a little bit of additional information.

I tried initiating the automated email address submission feature again, but without great success. I reset the default email manually, and when I invoked the email submission, but that generated this dialog box.

From there, clicking Continue generated the following output from the Microsoft Exchange.

However, I still can't understand, why if I've set Mozilla Thunderbird as the default email application - why the email submission script doesn't pass the form through to Mozilla Thunderbird. Does any of this additional information help?
