PT 2.1 beta 1 - error with reply quoted

Post by Curtz » Sat Feb 02, 2002 4:24 pm

I noticed this:
The reply quoted does not work with my default program, Outlook XP. Yesterday the reply was empty as usual, today I get a 'wrong switch' error from Outlook.

If I select reply from preview on an account were CALYPSO is the mail program, then it executes my default mailprogram, Outlook... and now the reply quoted works...

Ehm... :o

I have a similar problem running Outlook Express. Except for the fact that I don't even get the chance to reply at all if I try it out of the preview window. From the "Mail" window it works fine...

I just re-checked the bug and - surpise - all of a sudden it works the way it's supposed to. Weird thing, any explanation?

Are you using the "MAPI instead of mailto:' option. Please see if that give different results.

I have:
* Ms Outlook 2000 (not Express) as Windows default mail program
* Qualcomm Eudora as PopTray default mail program
* Netscape 4.7x
* Ms Outlook Express

Using MAPI:
replying/writing a message PopTray opens Netscape Messanger

Not using MAPI:
PopTray uses Outlook 2000.

But, I was expecting Eudora! What's wrong?

Best regards,

I tried both (MAPI and "mailto") and the bug doesn't seem to appear anymore. Neither with Win98SE nor WinXP.

I'll try to reproduce it...

ilNebbioso,

This really all comes down to how your e-mail clients are setup. Netscape is your MAPI default client and Outlook is your default "mailto:" client. Are there nothing in Eudora's setup to make it default? Otherwise if you are comfortable with registry editing you can set it yourself. Not sure if Eudora supports a MAPI interface.

Renier,
thank you again for the attention you spent for me.

I checked out the Internet Options into the Control Panel and I found Netscape Messanger as my default mail client.

Changing it to Eudora it works but I don't want to use Eudora normally, but only when I use PopTray: that's because there is the Default->E-mail program option, isn't it?

When I change the Control Panel Default mail program option to Outlook 2000:
* Mailto option calls Outlook
* MAPI option calls Exchange (a new entry!) :D

Eudora does support MAPI, but there's no option to set up it as default. So, please explain how to modify registry in this way.
Best regards,

I don't use Eudora, but the Eudora MAPI FAQ mentions a Tools:Options:MAPI dialog box. Maybe this will help?

Renier,
I thought (wrong) that "use Eudora MAPI server" wasn't my option...
Sorry. :(
