A client was complaining that her LibreOffice wouldn't let her send her documents as email attachments from the file menu. After some investigation it was found that this feature works fine with clients such as Mozilla Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail 2010. However when using Windows Live 2011, it would return the error "No valid email clients configured."
We have tried setting default program access in the control panel. We have also tried setting it manually in LibreOffice, but no such a setting was available.
Sorry for waiting....
* Does it work with mailto: links in browsers? (Klick on a E-Mail adress from the browser)
* Have you tried with 3.5rc1 (rc2 should be out by the end of this week...)
Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
Also reported on AskLibO for LibO 3.5.2
Also reported as 'OOo-Bug_115552 - Unable to use Windows Live Mail 2011 to send e-mail' for OOo 3.2.1/3.3.0
LibO seems to work with any mail client except WLM, to me that seems to be a WLM problem?
That WLM works with other WIN programs proves nothing, what's with other not-Microsoft-Programs?
I found some tips on <http://email.about.com/od/livemaildesktoptips/Windows_Live_Mail_desktop_Tips_Tricks_and_Secrets.htm>
Currently I'm tending to make this one as NOTOURBUG if we do not get plausible indication that this is a LibO bug.
There's a crash in senddoc.exe, confirmed in 126.96.36.199.
Yet Wordpad sends documents fine.
Such a Crash confirmed in what Bug Number? Or at least some other comprehensible description? I only find <http://ask.libreoffice.org/question/3942/senddocexe-errors/#3976> + <http://ask.libreoffice.org/question/1963/send-document-via-email-doesnt-work/> what refer to this bug here and explain nothing. Do you have better sources?
Currently this Bug is not NEW:
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage#Process> item 5
Same Problem here with Outlook 2010 (64bit) on Windows 7 (64bit) (German)
"...unable to find a working e-mail configuration..."
System default email program checked, also Wordpad can send without any problem.
1. yes, mailto: from browsers are working
2. tried with 3.5.4 and 3.6.1 - same result
Hint: I'm a java developer and I have the same problem when I use shellexecute to send a mail. Solution is here, use this form:
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler mailto:.....
*** Bug 81653 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Same bug appears with Apache OpenOffice 4
Windows 7 64 bits
LibreOffice 4.3.0 and 188.8.131.52
Apache OO 4.1.1
It's OK if default mail client is Thunderbird.
Moving to NEW as REOPENED is incorrect.
If any additional info is needed, feel fre to contact me. End-user, but if I get detailed instructions I can (and am willing) to help solve this issue.
A similar issue was reported here:
The comment points out that MAPILogon()/MAPILogoff() are marked as deprecated, and aren't necessary. I made and tested the change with Windows Live Mail 2011 & Mozilla Thunderbird, and both seem to work fine (should probably be tested with a wider range of clients, though).
In the meantime I came across an issue that is not related to this particular bug, but the simplemail helper: it does not work with Unicode file names. Trying to send such a file is going to yield an error regardless of the e-mail client used. It isn't okay under Linux, either, it doesn't fail, but shows an URL-encoded subject in the e-mail editor, at least when using Thunderbird.
For the unicode file paths thing, MS only added a unicode variant of MAPISendMail in Windows8.
It also looks like some older MAPI clients don't support Unicode path names, so the most
compatible thing to do is to call GetShortPathNameW on the path name before passing it to MAPI.
Please open a new bug for the unicode paths thing, and copy these comments there.
Aron Budea committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#43368 Remove MapiLogon/Logoff calls so simplemail works with WLM
It will be available in 4.5.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.0.5 or 5.1.0) https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

A fix was committed in early 2015; no idea why this bug wasn’t closed back then. Besides, Windows Live Mail is abandonware; should issues still happen, you should try with the newer Open Live Writer (an open-source fork by Microsoft employees), a newer version of LibreOffice, and a fresh bug report.
