    CMC Mail Provider?

    If I use the shortcut "Send to Desktop (as shortcut)" it doesn't work... I get a message "No CMC Mail Provider".

    What is this (my email is working), and how do I fix it?

    Regards,

    Stuart:

    Same error...

    There's some problem with the setup... and I have just installed sK, so everything should be "right"

    ??

    What is "sK" and did this shortcut work properly before you installed it?

    Based on some threads in December, I am virtually certain that, by sK, Chuck means 2K.

    Try this from Techspot
    <hr>When you are in the "users name folder" and the hidden folders are visible, right click on the Desktop folder and drag it into the Send To folder. When you let go, a menu should pop-up select, Create Shortcut(s) Here.<hr>

    Leif:

    The page you referenced solves the problem by putting a "Desktop" shortcut in the SendTo folder...

    This works when you are sending a shortcut...

    What it does not encompass is sending a file or folder, because with this method, you end up with the entire item, not a shortcut.

    I solved the problem the "easy" way -- I re-installed W2k... But since this has happened to me before, I would really like to get to the bottom of the problem..

    Hum-m-m
