email from web sites

Postby mark » Sat Aug 14, 2004 11:19 pm

Hi,

If I click an email address from a web site I get a "could not perform this operation because the default client is not installed properly" message.

Checking in the options programme section of ie I can choose Poco but not Barca. I think Poco opened up a new message to send emails without difficulty. If Barca is using the same email elements why will it not open a new message as Poco does?

Is there any way around this beyond cut and paste or using two email clients?

Uncheck 'Default browser' in IE and close. After that make Barca your default email client.
Open IE again and check to make IE your default browser and choose Poco as email client and close IE again. Try it afterwards.
Barca isn't in the list :?

FYI: I use Firefox as default and when I click a link in Poco or Barca it opens in Firefox.

I hope this can help you. :wink:

Hi Eric,

Thanks for that, I've got Barca opening a new message window now when I click links.

I also use Firefox but I think I read somewhere that you need to set default programmes in ie anyway, have I got that wrong?

:oops: Sorry for misreading, kids running around me. :lol:
I just tried it to click on a weblink and Barca opened a new message with the email address in it. :D
IE generates the error, as described above :?

Good news. :D

The default programs must be set in IE for some browsers to work correctly, if I remember correctly.
:roll: Maybe someone more experienced with it can answer your question!

Also note that PocoMail/Barca support plain mailto links in web browsers but do not currently support MAPI. This may or may not apply in this case.
