          There's a list in FileMaker Help (look up "send mail"). To that list, you an add MS outlook if you have the latest free update to FileMaker 11.

            I assume you are referring to the 'Notes' paragraph in 'Send Mail' (shown below). Windows 'Live Mail' is not mentioned. Is Windows Live Mail supported in FM11?

            To send email, you must have an internet connection. In addition, to send mail through an email application, you must have the following configurations.
            Windows:
             •
            A [Mail] section in the Win.ini file.
             •
            Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express and Eudora installed and configured properly.


            Mac OS:
             •
            Mac OS X Mail or Microsoft Entourage installed to send email with FileMaker Pro.
             •
            Internet system preferences configured for use with one of the supported mail applications.
             •
            If you use Eudora 5, start the Eudora application before performing this script step.
             •
            If you select Multiple emails and For each message, collect addresses across found set, FileMaker Pro generates an email message for every record in the found set. Each message is addressed to everyone specified in the TO, CC and BCC boxes for every record in the found set.
             •
            You can create an Adobe PDF or a Microsoft Excel file from your data to send as an attachment. For more information, see Save Records As PDF and Save Records As Excel.

              You need a client application installed on your computer. Live Mail is web based for interaction via a web browser. I think you can configure outlook to work with Live Mail. If you can get that to work, then Outlook is your client.
