Surface Pro (2017) vs Surface Pro 4
I have installed MW 1.6, and it "can't find the default email application", when I try to Process Mail.
Now, I HAVE gone to the MW site,but because it's free, they won't support, although they did hint at what to do. They suggested : "Just tick,"Include in default mail check" under, TOOLS>>Email accounts, click your account and click OK,OK.
I have also had some response from the MW Forum, stating "the default mail application should be settable via OPTIONS.
All of the above I have tried (hundreds of times!), to no avail.
So, has anyone else had the same problem, and subsequently solved it?
I have to add that Outlook Express 6 works fine when I bypass Mailwasher.
Left of General Options.
Launch email application after processing.TICKED.
Minimize MW after processing.TICKED.
Play sound when new email arrives.Ticked.
Blink icon when new mail arrives.TICKED.
Perform default mail check every.....UNTICKED.
Right of General Options.
Minimize MW when X clicked. UNTICKED.
Load MW on startup.UNTICKED.
Minimize MW on startup.UNTICKED.
Perform default mail check on startup.UNTICKED.
Shortcut key box, Ctrl+Shift+M
Not quite - you still need to press that 'Specify' button I mentioned. That's where you tell Mailwasher what email application you are using.
It's actually a bit confusing when you look at it because it appears to relate to the 'Minimize MailWasher when [X] clicked' option rather than 'Launch email application after processing'.
"Not quite - you still need to press that 'Specify' button I mentioned. That's where you tell Mailwasher what email application you are using"
Right....in that box you will see "specify a mail command" click the box to the right which will open another box with all your executable programs>navigate to Outlookk Express and select MSIMN>then you can test launch it and OE should open for you.
I'm using 6.1 pro
The problem now seems resolved.However, I have to click on the 'Check Mail' icon to receive my emails. Now, I am sure there is another box I can tick to get MW to show my incoming mail, without my having to click 'Check Mail'.
We are nearly there!!
If you mean on starting Mailwasher then tick 'Perform default mail check on startup'
Or if it's already running a regular check is made by selecting 'Perform mailcheck every' and chosing the number of minutes between checks.
Thank you both for your wonderful help. This Forum and members are the best!
