Download WLM 2011 and configue it as default e-mail client
Run WordPad and try to send a file by e-mail, that's work!

Now, run Writer and try to use File > Send > Document as E-mail
That's failed!
Error dialog: was unable to find a working e-mail configuration. Please save
this document locally instead and attach it from within your e-mail client

IMHO Windows Live Mail is currently not supported by OOo, so this is more an
enhancement issue

Bonjour, aujourd'hui dimanche 20 mars 2011, il est encore impossible de configurer avec Win 7, OO3.3.0 et Win live mail.
Le programme Win live mail s'ouvre puis s’éteint et apparait quelques instants plus tard, le message suivant :
OpenOffice n'a pas pu trouver de configuration de messagerie valide. Enregistrez etc...

Comment 7 suefenton 2011-06-18 15:23:55 UTC
I uninstalled WLM 2011 and installed WLM (2009) and now OOo can send email through it but can't open docx attachment from inside email client, but can open it if I save attachment to desktop first. (On Windows 7 computer - but can on my Windows XP computer).  Then downloaded trial version of Microsoft Office 2010 and all works hunky dory :( - don't want to buy it - want OOo

Recently,i purchased microsoft outlook as my e-mail client and uninstalled wlm.
Thus i am now able to send an e-mail directly from oo with outlook as my e-mail client.  Problem solved,but it cost me.

It would be very convenient if AOO works again (under Windows 8) with WLM like under Windows XP.
