[SOLVED] mail to links do not work
#1
Whenever I click on a "mail to" link in an email, it takes me to my default browser instead of opening a new mail. How can I fix this? It worked fine on my old computer but not on this one. Thanks!

The windows "mail-to" feature, for sending emails from external programs is only working on windows 7, not on windows 8 and 10.
For sending files directly to mail on windows 8 and 10 you can use our send-to tool (http://runasxp.com/Thread-SendTo-tool-fo...ok-Express) that gives you that ability.

I am on Windows 7, and I am trying to use mail to links within emails, not from an external program. It works fine on my other computer but not on this one.

Chrome. These should not be opening in a browser though, they should bring up the new email window.

ETA: I figured it out! It had somehow gotten changed to Chrome in the Default Programs panel in control panel!

PS: I am ecstatic to have this program (Outlook Express) again as I tried other emails on Windows 7 and do not like them. It was well worth the money to get your version of OE and I thank you for the time you put into it.

On Windows 10 "SendTo" tool works only when OE is not started. If OE is started then right-click on a file (a pic for example) and "Send To OE Mail" option doesn't work. Also drag&drop a file on a new message window doesn't work anymore on Windows 10.
Any plans to fix those issues in the near future?
Thanks.

Of course, on next version it most possible will be fixed.
