    I know it works with Outlook but wanted to know if there's a working solution/hack to make it also work with default Windows 10 Mail app...

    Someone mentioned this program:
    BlogPostStorage/SendViaMailApp.zip at master . CCOSTAN/BlogPostStorage . GitHub

    in this thread:

    but it's UPX packed (looks like an AutoHotkey script-exe) and a bit shady...

    Send To Mail Recipient Issues


    At some point in the last couple of weeks the Send To/Mail Recipient function has stopped working. When I select a file and do the send to, Windows starts thinking, the explorer window that I have selected this from stops taking input and then eventually, with no error messages, the explorer window closes and desktop explorer resets.

    My Default mail client is Outlook 2013 (15.0.4745.1000)

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

  3. 'send document to email recipient' option for Mail App

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that you are not able to use the Mail App as default send to mail recipient option.

    The ability to email a file from Windows Explorer relies on MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface), which is something that the Windows Mail app doesn't currently support.

    Please be informed that the Windows mail app is not an email client and does not accept the "send to mail recipient" or other such functions. MAPI support is responsible for the mail:to function in Windows.

    If you have any suggestions about Windows 10, I suggest you to post your valuable feedback about Windows 10 in feedback app. So, that it will be helpful for the developers to integrate the changes suggested by you.

    Open start menu , type Feedback app in search bar and click on feedback app to open it. Post your suggestions in feedback app.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you.

    Mail App and File Explorer option Send to > Mail Recipient solution?

    Send-to mail recipient association to Outlook but should be to Mail


    Hi, this is not straightforward. The Sendto mail recipient requires a MAPI compliant mail program (If you examine shell:sendto you will see MailRecipient.MAPIMail). Essentially this also requires a client that can be invoked with a parameter - and universal apps don't take parameters- they are not exe files.

    See:
    Windows 10 error - Microsoft Community
    for more discussion and find

    - it seems this offers a solution.

    Please let us know if it works. Thanks.
