    I've configured a fillable pdf document with an automated email address submission button, which all seems to be working just fine. However, when I test it, Windows doesn't seem to know which default email client to use for email purposes.

    I know that to change your default email client you:

    1) The settings are located in Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Set Programs Access and Defaults>Custom
    2) Click the arrows pointing down to expand the Custom entry.
    3) The email programs you have installed on your computer should be listed here. Place a check next to your preferred email client.
    4) Press the OK button.
    5) Exit the Control Panel.

    My setting appears to be correctly set to Mozilla Thunderbird, but when I invoke the Submit (email) button on my pdf form, I get:

    What additional tweak(s) do I need to make from here to integrate my email client ( I could have sworn I was done . . .). Thanks!

    This posting has elicited a surprising absence of replies, so I thought I would try to resurface it, and append a little bit of additional information.

    I tried initiating the automated email address submission feature again, but without great success. I reset the default email manually, and when I invoked the email submission, but that generated this dialog box.

    From there, clicking Continue generated the following output from the Microsoft Exchange.

    However, I still can't understand, why if I've set Mozilla Thunderbird as the default email application - why the email submission script doesn't pass the form through to Mozilla Thunderbird. Does any of this additional information help?
