Send To Mail Recipient option does nothing

Published: June 2004
Send your feedback

Symptom

When you right-click a file and choose the Mail Recipient option in the Send To menu, the email window may not open.

Cause

This happens due to one of the following reasons:

  • The default mail client is not set
  • The MAPI DLL registry path for your mail client is missing

Resolution

Click Start, Run and type:

regsvr32 sendmail.dll

Next, set your default email client. To set Outlook Express as your default mail client, type the following commands:

"%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /REG

regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msoe.dll"

For other email clients, use the Internet Options applet in the Control Panel. For more information, see article How do I set my default e-mail client?
