Hello,

Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this. I have posted a similar question in Lotus forum also.

I am on Windows 2000 professional with Office 2000 and Lotus V5.

1) When I right click on my office applications, in the Send To list, I dont have Mail Recipient listed there? What is missing and how to bring Mail Recipient in that option?

2) Once Mail Recipient is added, how can I make it to open the Lotus Mail when I use the Mail recipient feature?

I already checked Internet Options->Programs and it already has Lotus Mail as the default mail client. But the fields there are disabled, (I guess that is company policy!).

I also noticed that there is a 0KB Mail Recipient MAPIMAIL file present in my C:\Documents and Settings\...\SendTo folder.

Please suggest how to do this..

Thanks

I noticed that it does list a Mail Recipient.MAPIMAIL file in the sendto folder and that .MAPIMAIL  does not have an associated application on the file type tab in folder options. I tried removing the file type, but it also removed the Mail Recipient option on the send to context menu! I tried adding the file type again, but it did not add the option back to the context menu.

The desktop.ini file in the send to folder contains more information:

[LocalizedFileNames]
Mail Recipient.MAPIMail=@sendmail.dll,-4

It appears to use the sendmail.dll file to interface with the mail program. I tried re-registering the sendmail.dll using "regsvr32 sendmail.dll" and the Mail Recipient showed up in the send to context menu again.

That should get the option back into the send to context menu, but it may try send using outlook express instead of lotus notes.
