I had a user the other day that wasn't able to get outlook to open with a submit button using the mailto: protocol.

-I checked that outlook was set for default with email and the mailto: and it was for both

-I checked for interfering security settings between those that it worked for and those that it didn't

-Windows 10 to Windows 7 doesn't seem to be the difference as it works for both and doesn't work for others using Windows 10/7

-Users are working with a VM environment but this also has some that work and some that don't

Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this as the pdf needs to be sent to non-domain users that won't have IT support to call.

Thanks,

Kendall

Also, for troubleshooting purpose, try sending pdf using envelop icon in the toolbar > Send file and check if that brings up "Send Email" dialogue box.

Thank You,

Hi Yvonne!

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

We have checked the PDF that you shared above on a Windows machine.

The submit button works fine at our end.

 

Could you please confirm how the user on the Windows machine fills the PDF form?

Are they using Adobe or another application to open the PDF?

Please share more information.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

I told them to download the form to their desktop before attempting to fill out the form.  I'm told they are using Adobe. It's very challenging when my client want to send this out to hundreds of donors.
