Subject RE: Still unable to email documents with version 4 upgrade
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2013 18:03:19 GMT
That's not the issue.  Apache OpenOffice does not discriminate on that basis.

What is the issue is that Apache OpenOffice uses the on-desktop protocol for requesting the
opening of an e-mail with a given attachment.  This will usually be whatever is recognized
as the default e-mail application on the desktop.  Google does not provide any kind of desktop
presence by which this can be handled.

However, it is possible to access Google Mail by standard desktop e-mail applications, instead
of using a browser.  *That* software can then be reached by Apache OpenOffice so long as it
is capable of being registered as the default e-mail application.  

The Microsoft Outlook desktop application will do this -- connect to Google Mail and integrate
with Apache OpenOffice.  Depending on operating system, the Windows Live Mail application
will also connect to Google Mail and also be triggered by Apache OpenOffice.  The same should
apply for Outlook Express if someone still uses an operating system that has that desktop

There are some differences in how this works with Windows 8.  There is some other thread or
perhaps bugzilla issue where that has been discussed.

I was hoping this upgrade would overcome this frustrating and very annoying
problem.  It does not!!

I use Google for everything, and for any office platform not to recognize
Google email is stone age stuff !

Why should OO give a special treatment to a proprietary web service from 3rd 
party company?
