Send To Mail Recipient option not working on server 2003 with outlook 2003
Posted on 2011-09-05
The Send To > Mail Recipient option in the selected file drop down menu is no longer working, after a bit of research i found a workaround by creating a shortcut in the Send To directory like so :
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE" /c ipm.note /a
and then choosing the shortcut instead of the usual Mail Recipient MAPIMAIL file.
I have also tried creating a new MAPIMAIL file by creating a blank text document and giving it a MAPIMAIL exstension.
This works but as it's a probloem for all the users on the network it's not really a good workaround as it would mean copying this new shortcut to all the users directories too.
I have set outlook as the default email program and thisa has not worked either. Oddly enough if i set it too Outlook Exspress it will open outlook express, but the same will not work for Outlook.
Any Ideas on a fix ?
