    Is there an e-mail client software package that can support two concurrent users?

    The situation is two users on a small network sharing a local e-mail filestore. Several e-mail addresses feed into the shared filestore and are then transferred from the Inbox to named folders, as appropriate, by either user. Long ago, Netscape Messenger did this by taking out a lock (Permission) when a folder was opened, to avoid it being updated by the other user at the same time.

    Is there a modern client that has a similar 'locking' facility?

    (Using Windows 10)

    Default e-mail client not chosen ?

    On the problem laptop ... I get same results with a 2nd profile with admin privileges.

    My other two laptops all have a single admin user. Ergo all settings/privileges the same.

    I don't do any syncing with any other devices. All of my laptops run as a stand-a-lone local user situation.

    I took the step this morning to do a repair/replace routine from my Windows 10 USB with the hopes that any files that might be messed up would be replaced, corrected, etc.. The process went very smooth. BTW - I had Thunderbird set as the default e-mail client during the refresh of Windows.

    Once completed I did my tests and individuals files (documents and JPGs) all routed to be processed via Thunderbird. Cautiously optimistic so I opened my report app to go through the report generation, ftp upload and then e-mail request and it chose Outlook as the e-mail client.

    So ... still stuck in neutral.

    As noted ... this same app does properly choose Thunderbird (when selected as the default e-mail client) when e-mailing the report.

    I must have a cantankerous laptop here ... UGH!

    For now ... I'll put Thunderbird on the back burner until I have or see another possible solution to try.

    Murphy is alive and well for me with this hiccup.

  3. E-Mail Client for E5

    Hi All,



    I've downloaded the e-mail Client 3.21 hoping it would solve this issue but it has not.



    The issue is with displaying e-mails when opening [Mail for Exchange] as follows:



    [Mail for Exchange] has always been set to [Never] delete any mail Item and I've, on my device, in both [Inbox] and [Sent Items] e-mails dating back to January 5th 2011 but when I open [Mail for Exchange] I can only see e-mails dating back to October 12th
    2011.



    I know that all e-mails are there because if I sort again by Date the e-mail list in both folders, [Inbox] and [Sent Items], starts from January 5th 2011.



    Does anyone know how to list all the e-mails in [Mail for Exchange] no matter how old they are.



    Very Best Regards

    Default e-mail client not chosen ?

    A lot of digging and testing has been done to try and find something to resolve the weird default e-mail client issues in Windows 10 v1803. Below is a list of findings and a huge Thank You to the developer of the report generation software I've been using for many years. We're all just shaking our heads at this in wonder.

    I'm sure more will be discovered for this chapter. *Wink

    At least, knowing this will allow changes to have things work as the user would like.

    Findings ... "So Far":

    1. Right-click a file in the file browser > Send To > uses the setting in:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\mail > (Default) value
    If not found will use the one in:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail > (Default) Value

    If that value is empty, it will prompt you to select one, and it write it to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\mail > (Default) value

    2. Setting the default app for Mail in the Windows Settings does nothing to either one of those keys. And since it does nothing to those two keys, any apps including the send to context menu item will not use the selection for the default app you set in Windows Settings.

    3. MAPI uses those registry keys (and Send To uses MAPI), so basically it ignores what you set as the default app in Windows Settings, so if you want MAPI to use the default, you have to set it manually as far as I know. For example, the list of available MAPI Email clients is only in:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail
    But you should set both (Default) values to the same value. For example, if you want Mozilla Thunderbird as your default MAPI email client, you have to modify both like so:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\mail > (Default) value = Mozilla Thunderbird
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail > (Default) Value = Mozilla Thunderbird


    =================

    I'm marking this thread as (at least) one solution (or SOLVED) as it is the only one I've come across so far. I know that adjusting the registry is not everyone's choice, but at least it is an option.
