Description Milos Sramek 2014-01-26 06:35:45 UTC

Current behavior:
if Tools > Options > Internet > E-mail is not set, LO still opens a mailer on any of the four e-mailing possibilities in File > Send, however, without any attached document. Observer on LO40, 41 and 42.

If mailer is set, the file is attached.

Desired behavior:
LO either displays a warning about the unconfigured e-mail (as Apache OO does) or the file is correctly attached. 

The current behavior is bad, since a user can easily get an false impression that e-mailing is not functional in LO. 

In fact, the right dialog is there: ./share/config/soffice.cfg/sfx/ui/errorfindemaildialog.ui

Anyway, I would change that text from  
Please save this document locally instead and attach it from within your e-mail client.
Please configure e-mail in File > Options > Internet > E-mail or save this document locally instead and attach it from within your e-mail client.

The same here.
There was an email program set (???lumoa or something like that) which I never had, somehow mystious.
My thunderbird was recognized anyway, but no attachment as above.

Dear Milos Sramek,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

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) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
