Description brendel 2007-07-31 14:59:26 UTC
Ihave OO 2.2.1 installed and use Pegasus mail ( as my mailing
programm. When I try to send a document as email I get the error message "OO was
unable to find a working e-mail configuration ..."
However I cannot find any options for an email configuration.
In older OO versions there was Tools->Options->>External Programs
but this does not exist anymore and no replacement option seems to have been added.
I have tried to configure the Mail merge email option in the "options" window,
where I can directly configure my smtp server : this does work just fine, at
least with the "Test settings" button, however it did not resolve the problem
with send documents.
Pmail is registered as the main mailing programm on my computer and works with
other programms (e.g. I can send a file from the filemanager as email)
How can I configure my mailing programm within OO ?

we are now at version 3.2 of OpenOffice and three years later and this still
does not work. I'm used now to need to save and then find the document again and
then send it from my email program. But every now and then it frustrates me that
this should be basically possible from within OOO. 
There is no reason that windows XP and other programs see PMail as system mailer
and OO does not. 
If there are any tests I could do I'm willing to help

there seem to be several other issues over time that were/are related to this,
most of them were not followed up as far as I can see :
