DoCmd.SendObject works with Thunderbird?

Hi all,
From what I understand, the DoCmd.SendObject looks up the user's default email client. I just wanted to make sure that this would work if the user has thunderbird as the default. Unfortunately, I do not have either Outlook or thunderbird on my computer so I cannot test it until I get to the user's computer.
Thanks

   DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, "rpt_CustomerQuoteCategoryA", , , ,, "Steel Grip ProductQuote", "Attached is the Steel Grip Quote for" &PartNumber & ProdDesc, True

Yes, if the Client is MAPI compliant...

Perhaps, also investigate sending mail using CDO (or something similar):

Let's see if any other experts can provide more input...
