Error message while trying to Email Photos in PaintShop Pro X4


If you receive this error when trying to email a picture as either an attachment or embedded:


It means that you would require a MAPI standard type email default program (or can be configured to use the MAPI email client) to be installed on your system. Such programs include Microsoft Outlook or Windows Live Mail. The program will not support web based programs such as GMail, Hotmail or AOL.

It will also mean that if you do have Outlook, it is not considered the Default Mail program on your computer. To update your default programs, click on START > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs. Next choose either Microsoft Outlook or Windows Live Mail from the list and click on "Set Program As Default".

    This error message is caused because your email is through a browser. By downloading and installing an email program such as Mozilla Thunderbird, PSPx.. will be able to access and attach your photo(s). Be sure to set up the email program with your email address so that you have the ability to access your email. I did this and it automatically set Thunderbird as the default and now my PSPx9 works like it should.
