If Windows does not know which default email program you want to use, you may receive errors when you try to deliver a report via email. Your error might state: "Could not send message: A MAPI Compatible email application could not be detected when using Report Delivery" or "General MAPI failure ." Follow the steps below to assign your default email application.
To set a default email client, you need to have one configured. If you don't have one configured yet, click here for instructions.
TOTAL isn't compatible with Windows 8 and 10's built-in email app. You need a different email client, such as Outlook, Thunderbird, or Live Mail to use the Share Report function.
Now, close any windows you have open and try delivering your report again. If you still have problems, proceed to the next section.
If you're still experiencing difficulties after setting your default mail program, you can fix it by updating the file Windows references when sending mail through your default email program. Simply go to http://www.alamode.com/tech/files/FixMAPI.exe in your internet browser, and choose to Run the program when prompted.
When complete, click OK and resend your report.
