Can't set the email

Postby simo1985 » Mon Jul 16, 2018 10:37 am

Hi, I'm using OO 4.1.5 with Windows 10 and I want to send an email (Toolbar: File>Send>E-mail as PDF). When I do it I obtain an error which says that there are no associate programs to send emails.
I searched on the internet and I discovered that I have to change mail settings in this way: Tools>Options>Internet>Mail.
Well, my problem is that the button "mail" does not exists.
How can I solve the problem?
OpenOffice version: 4.1.5
Operating system: MacOS High Sierra, version 10.13.3

Options is under Preferences on a Mac.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

If you are new to the AOO/Mac combination, you may find [Tutorial] Mac FAQ a useful resource.

Tools > Options > Internet > E-mail" is for Unix systems. In Windows, the default e-mail program is a Windows setting, but the default e-mail program in Windows 10 isn't compatible with AOO. You can install a compatible e-mail program like Thunderbird and set it as the default or save the document and use the default e-mail program to send the document.
