OS Windows 8.1X64.
Using Windows Live Mail MAPI
With Libre Office Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: 88805f81e9fe61362df02b9941de8e38a9b5fd16
Unable to send email from within Libre Office.
Live mail fails to load properly when sending email. Live mail start logo loads but fails with error “Libre Office was unable to find a working e-mail configuration”.
Senddoc.exe fails when opened from senddoc.exe, program folder with error Sal3dll missing. (I have repaired with fresh download and the same happens)
I am informed by Microsoft that the problem is to be found in senddoc.sh which does not have Live Mail listed.
Microsoft forum writes:
“The problem is with LO. Its code for invoking the default mail client and then using it to send a file apparently doesn’t have what it takes to invoke Windows Live Mail. This would normally involve looking up the default at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail, which gives the path to the default program’s executable. You’re sure that Windows Live Mail is now recorded as (Default)? Otherwise, you’d have to find out from the LO people where they look for the default mail client”
Whilst I am aware that the work around is to save as and then attach the file, a time consuming effort.
Can we have this shortfall corrected as a joined up program so emails can be sent using a more up to date set of email apps and configurations.
