Invoking web based email client using Email button

Avatar

08-12-2008

I have developed a form using Adobe LiveCycle designer 8 which has an email button. Right now, when the email button is clicked, the form is attached as PDF to the desktop based default email client, Novell or Outlook express.



Is it possible to have the users select a email client of their choice (Hotmail, GMail etc) as most of our users are general public and are unlikely to use desktop clients.



Appreciate your help..

It will use the default mail client in the machine. If more than one is present it will prompt you to choose the mail client.

How do I add multiple email clients on my machine. I navigated to Tool->Options->Programs, in Internet Explorer and in the Email field, I have Hotmail, Novell, Outlook with Novell set as default. However, when I click Submit, it is not asking me to select the email client.



Another issue: I changed my default mail client to Hotmail, however, when I submit , the "To" address is populated but the pdf is not attached to the compose message window.



Thanks for your prompt response.
