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 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.

I confirm this behaviour.  Ubuntu 14.04lts, AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ × 2, libreoffice
