    Does anyone have the solution for the sendto command allowing a file or photo to be sent in Outlook Express 6 as an attachment not functioning?
    I use winme, IE 6.0 sp1. Also the "send page or URL in internet browser doesn't work either. Neither is greyed out. Thanx

    Hi zkhul

    What happens when you try those functions?

    Outlook Express may have become unregistered as your default email client, do you have Microsoft Outlook installed?

    Try reregistering Outlook Express to be your default email client:

    With all windows closed.
    Start > Run
    Key in:
    "C:\program files\outlook express\msimn.exe" /reg

    Verify this is the path that msimn.exe is located and be sure to include the quotes.
    This is a silent command, there will be no messages to indicate it was successful.
    ________________________________________________________________

    Then open Outlook Express,
    Tools > Options > General tab,
    and verify Outlook Express is your default messaging program at the bottom of the page.
    ________________________________________________________________

    Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs tab
    Verify Outlook Express is the program showing in the E-Mail: window.
    Apply, OK to close and save.

    Let us know if this works or not.

    Hi, Outlook Express is my default mail client. I don't have Microsoft Outlook, altho a "knowledgable" friend suggest thAT I USE IT INSTEAD.

    OE shows as the E-mail as well as the messaging client, but it is now greyed out. I entered the silent command re MSIMN, and checked registry for its presence. In registry it looks like this: ""C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"% 1". Is that correct - all thos quote marks? Anyway nothing's changed.

    What is the full name of the Registry key where that is appearing?

    _______________________________________________________________

    Also check your File types:
    Open My Computer or Windows Explorer:
    Tools > Folder Options > File types tab
    See if the settings show the following:

    URL:MailTo Protocol
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /mailurl:%1

    Click Advanced,
    Click on the action: Open,
    Click Edit
    Look in the: Application used to perform action: window to check your settings.

    Registry Key: HKey_Classes_Root- Applications -Shell -Open -Command. On the right side is: ""C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"% 1".

    There is no entry for URL:MailTo Protocol, only one for Internet Explorer.

    I will check the addresses above that you gave

    Hmmm, I do not have that Registry key.

    You do not have this file type?
    URL:MailTo Protocol

    Nope, I looked and looked and there is only one URL on the extension left side and Internet Shortcut (not Explorer) on the right file type side. There are no "URLs" on the "file type" side. And no "NONEs" at all in the extension column. Does that need reconfiguring?

    Does your Windows Me File types window look different from mine?

    Sorry, I don't have Windows Me to look at.

    Can you post a screenshot?

    I get that same error 0x800ccc19 msg from time to time that Dobiejr gets when sending email from OE.When closing down a site or page, it will notify me of msgs in outbox and if I want to send. After clicking yes or ok, sometimes it goes, other times, not. Invariably after rebooting annd opening OE, msgs will go. More often tho, the error is 0x800C0131. Its very frustrating!!!!

    Do you have email scanning enabled?
    What antivirus program are you using?
    Do you have an anti-spam program running?

    You can set your Server Timeouts to a longer duration:
    Tools > Accounts > AccountName > Properties > Advanced tab
    Move the Server Timeouts slider to at least two minutes.

    I had been looking for those "NONEs" in the extension column but when I checked once more, I found "N/A"s instead, and yes there is a "MailTo Protocol" (with N/A as ext. instead od NONE).
    The icon is an envelope. When I go to advanced and edit file type, the action is "open" with "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe".

    How to post screen shot?

    To post a screenshot, first crop your screenshot using MSPaint or Irfanview and save the file as a .jpg or .jpeg.
    MSPaint will default to saving the file as a .bmp which is larger than a .jpg, so instead of Save, use File > Save As and select .jpg from the Save As File types.

    Click on the Post Reply button, below the Reply window is a Manage Attachments button. A window will open where you can Browse to the location of the file on your computer and upload it to the server here.

    ________________________________________________________________

    The command for the URL:MailTo Protocol looks correct.
    You can Edit the command to add the
    /mailurl:%1 after the quotes, there is a space before the forward slash.

    From the above link, did you check the following setting in your Registry?

    Funny thing - I went to add /mailurl:%1 after the quotes, and it was already there. I don't remember seeing it there before..................
    I did that thing already with the registry as recommended at OLEXP..........both values for default and dllpath were already there. Didn't have to do anything.

    I will scan my OE for viruses. I use Panicware's Popup Stopper. My HJT log is clean wiith only 15 line items.

    Well it can't hurt to scan for viruses, my question on whether you had email scanning enabled or an anti-spam program running was in response to your 0x800ccc19 time out error.
    Those programs can cause Outlook Express to Time Out when Sending messages.

    ________________________________________________________________

    This error: 0x800C0131 can be caused by a corrupted Folders.dbx file.

    Enable: Hidden files and folders: (based on Windows XP steps) hopefully WindowsMe is not much different.
    Open My Computer,
    Tools > Folder Options > View tab,
    under Hidden Files and Folders,
    verify Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected.
    uncheck Hide Extensions for known file types
    Apply, OK, to save and close.

    ________________________________________________________________

    With Outlook Express closed:

    Start > Search > For Files or Folders
    All Files and Folders
    key in:
    .dbx
    Look in: Local Drives
    click the arrow for More Advanced Options
    place a checkmark in:
    Search System Folders
    Search hidden files and folders
    Search subfolders

    Click Search
    Locate the Folders.dbx file and rename it Folders.old
    ________________________________________________________________

    Have you tried reinstalling Internet Explorer to correct the SendTo problem?

    When I right click on a file > Send To > these are my options, what options for Mail Recipient do you have?

    I reinstalled IE 6 a day or 2 ago. I was disappointed when it did not correct "sendto"

    It times out once in a while, but the main bugger is that 0x800C0131. I have renewed my .dbx files several times. It seems to work for a short while, and then back to its ole game. Will reinstalling WinMe be helpful or is it definitely an IE issue?

    I'm still trying to figure how to get a screen shot of a file like that. Can you give me the command that will take it to where I can save it. I would have to cut and paste and image, because of send to.
