Suddenly, I am no longer able to email directly from a Microsoft Office application (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc) using the SEND TO feature UNDER the FILE MENU.

I get a "communication error" dialog box.

Does anyone know what the culprit could be and how to fix it?

thanks-

Which email client are you using (Outlook, Outlook Express, etc.) ???

Have you installed any new software or add-in's lately? Have you tried temporarily disabling any software firewalls to see if they may be blocking communications??

Also make sure the email client is listed as the default program for Windows to use. To do this open the Control Panel and click Internet Options >> Programs Tab and make sure the mail client is correctly listed. After you do this go back into the Control Panel and click "Add/Remove Programs." When the Add/Remove programs box opens click the option on the left hand side that reads "Set Program Access and Defaults" and select Microsoft Windows. Check to make sure the mail client is set here.

Regards,
Rollin

Rollin-

I am Using Microsoft Outlook 2003 - Small Business Edition.

I have not installed any new software or add-in's lately.

I have no software firewalls. I rely on the firewall built into the hardware of my router.

Under Control Panel and click Internet Options >> Programs Tab the email client is listed as the default program for Windows is listed as OUTLOOK EXPRESS, NOT MS OUTLOOK. In fact, there is no direct choice for selecting MS OUTLOOK.

Is Outlook Express configured on the machine? If not you may want to try to configure Outlook Express with your account information to see if the error is due to the application trying to use the unconfigured Outlook Express instead of Outlook. If the problem goes away after configuring Outlook Express with your account info we can then proceed to determine why Outlook is not being recognized as a choice for your default accounts. Did you check the second place to set defaults under ADD/REMOVE programs??

Rollin

Hi Rollin,

Yes, I check both places add/Remove and control panel>Internet options...etc..

I will now try setting it to MS Outlook express to test.
