Default email

Postby Sterling94 » Wed Jun 07, 2017 4:39 pm

Hi all. Exactly how do I go about changing the default email program? In my 3.4 version of openoffice when I hit the "send as email" key it automatically goes to a now defunct email provider. no help in the help manual.

You can set the default email client in your operating system. Use a real email client software, like the Thunderbird.

AOO will not work with web based email applications as ZiZi64 says.

Thunderbird is software you have to download and install on your computer, just like all other Mozilla products. So I would think people can read and write mail on it offline.

My email client is AOL for one reason: I can't figure out how to make something better work. One time I used Windows Mail to send Mom a link through the Email Link button, which only works for the computer's default mail program. She did not get it, so I had to send it again through AOL. She never had a problem getting emails from me when I used AOL Mail to send them.
