Send to Email doesn't work

With the newest Version of the Reader, when you select the "Send to Email recipient" Icon, the Standard E-Mail application doesn't open up anymore. Instead there is a column on the Right with different Options. The Reader doesn't seem to recognize the Standard E-Mail application, which in my case in Windows Live Mail, by a customer it is Thunderbird.

My colleague can send a mail, but even though he has Thunderbird as Standard E-Mai application, Adobe Reader Shows Outlook as the Standard.

Did something get changed, so that Adobe Reader only recognizes Outlook Mail (we all don't use Outlook)?

Hi Rogerr,

In Adobe Acrobat Reader, the outlook option is added by default to send the document as an email attachment.

Please try to add your account details under the List of email accounts under preferences.

Launch the application and go to Edit > Preferences > Email accounts.

At right, you will get an option to add an account.

Add your account details there and make it as default.

Then click on OK at the bottom to save the settings.

Then try to send PDF as an attachment and select webmail from the option provided at right.

In the drop-down list of "Select option", the account will be added by default.

Hope that helps.

Let us know if you experience any issue.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Please stop this madness!!!

Always changing things that worked before with a breeze!!!

Before with only a click you had the pdf attached in the email directly. Now it takes two more extra steps to make the same thing!!! This hurts the workflow!!!

At least give us the option to send email as before the new version.

I could not agree more!  Programmers continuouisly have to "fix" things because, well, they'd be out of a job if everything was fine so...

Hi Meenakshi,

Like OneSolo comments this change have made the work proccess for everyone much more cumbersome as for making the PDF attachment takes three total clicks instead of one.

Please urge development or whoever, to have the button "Attach to email" again or besides the new "share files for viewing or review and track responses" (awful name for a feature).

Thanks Sandeep. This fix worked for me, with the additional change that I also had to reset my default mail account back to Windows Live Mail in the regedit (Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail). For some reason, the default mail was changed to Outlook in the registry, even though in Windows I have Windows Live Mail set as standard app for e-mails. Didn't just happen with me, my colleague has Thunderbird as standard mail app and his was changed to Outook too.

Sadly the link points to a page that isn't helpful any more and Acrobat Reader DC has the same issue.

This doesn't send as an email attachment.  This forces us to "collaborate" and create an account, etc.  Totally annoying.  We used to be able to click a button and it takes us to the default email application and boom, keep going.  Now this nonsense and we have a person, employed by Adobe, who wants us to think this is an answer.

It's not, nor is the dumb video.

Hi Onesolo,

Please try steps given at: How to use the email icon to directly send file as attachment

That should make the email process, as it was in previous releases.

The ID you mentioned 4261277 is for a different issue, where Share did not work well from inside a browser.

Thanks!

How this isn't available as an option inside Adobe Reader and it was not released on .20074 hotfix?! Applying this patch file over +20 clients is time consuming and not the best way to deploy this...

A how to link does not fix the issue of a blank window when you click on the email button in Adobe Acrobat. You have given this a bunch of times but you are assuming that we don't know how to use the link rather than understanding the windows that comes up is 100% completely, totally blank, no options given, no choices given, it is blank...totally blank.

I'm not sure why this is considered fixed - it's not by a longshot.  It worked up until sometime last year and then some genius "fixed" Adobe so it's now gone.

I saw a recently posted on-line article here - a way you can tweak Outlook, except my Outlook doesn't have the option discussed in the article.  More imbecilic stuff from Adobe.  Yay!

I have had the same problem since last time Adobe updated. I use Thunderbird as my standard email client and it has been working fine until then. I been trying to get it to work again using all tips and tricks presented here and elsewhere on the Internet but without succeding. Now I have finally made it work again by changing 2 keys in the Register. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail where I changed (Standard) value to Morzilla Thunderbird and PreFirstRun value to "D:\Program\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -compose. The path is my local to Thunderbird so you need to put in your own.

The sad thing is Windows keeps changing it back to Outlook and deletes my value for PreFirstRun so have to change the Registry every time I want to send emails from Adobe. Anyone got any idea how to fix this Windows problem?

I wonder if you made the file "read only" if that would work.

Why is my email not letting me send emails?
If you can receive emails but can not send emails this usually means the authentication required by the outgoing (SMTP) server is not configured. If you can't send or receive emails the chances are your IP address has been auto banned, please go to this article instead. Please check the following before you contact us
