Description Geoffrey 2013-10-28 13:51:06 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a document (odt or docx doesn't matter)
2. Go to File -> Send -> Send document as e-mail

Current behavior:
It spawns errors at the user to configure the local e-mail client. (set as default application) (and in my case, an additional JRE error)

This problem also applies to Impress, and could apply to Calc (not tested)

Expected behavior:
It would be useful to support Gmail, Outlook (aka Hotmail) and Yahoo! Mail. Maybe this should be implemented in the settings as mail provider (local applications and supported web services listed)
              
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: 4.1.2.3 release

Hi Geoffrey,

As far as I know, Send as e-mail only works with default local mail clients..
Maybe that can be changed?

I am sure that major webmail providers will LOVE an interface for unattended mail sending, with attachments included!

Yeah, that would already be a part of the solution.

Unattended? So you call e-mail sending unattended, even with Thunderbird? :) Looking at Thunderbird, it also supports major webmail providers, why LibreOffice wouldn't be able? The core functionality of sending mails (SMTP) isn't that big. It only needs to be done.

Of course we'll need to setup the e-mail account in LibreOffice then before we can send e-mails (which is logical).
