    Send to Mail Recipient errors

    When I right-click on a file and select "Send to Mail Recipient" I get the error "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

    I have already gone to Default Program and set every option available to Thunderbird. What else do I have to do to get this action to work?

    Running Windows 7 64bit.

    Check in Thunderbird.
    Tools > Options > General.
    Under System Integration click the Check Now button.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul,

    Thanks for the tip (Tools > Options > General), sounded good until I tried to find "Under System Integration". Any suggestions?

    Sorry, it's not obvious when you first look at it.

    Tools > Options.
    Advanced section.
    General tab.

    cheers, Paul

    Under System Integration

    A check showed that this is already active.

    Now, I have a NEW problem. My "Send to recipient" option under "Send to" is gone.

    I have searched the web for solutions, but so far none have gotten my "Send to recipient" option back.

    I hate operating systems, every iteration just gets more frustrating. By now, the simple things should JUST WORK.

    Send To is just a folder. To get to it type this in Start > Run. %USERPROFILE%\SendTo
    You should now see all the Send To items, including "Mail Recipient". If it's not there you should be able to copy it from the default user.
    Start > Run. %USERPROFILE%\..\Default User\SendTo

    cheers, Paul

    Send To

    Paul,

    That was what I thought. I have been there and there is a "Mail recipient.MAPIMail"

    But it does not show up when I right-click on a file and select "Send to".

    getting mapi mail client to stick

    We have found that sometimes windows (uh, we use xp) forgets who is the mapi mail client.

    Go to control panel, internet options, programs and change the mail client to outlook express or live, anything microsoft. Click ok. then reboot.

    Try right clicking and see if outlook express opens as the mail client. If not, I don't know what is wrong.

    If outlook express does come up, then windows now recognizes a mapi mail client. Do the same steps and set it back to thunderbird. You may not have to reboot.


    good luck.
    ---Dale
