    Send a file via email


    I want to send spreadsheets and text documents to a mail group. With the file open, if I choose Send to, I get a message "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please ... create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I have not found a way to do this. Would appreciate help.

    Hi, It would appear you have not set up your email either yet or correctly to allow files to be sent. You haven't stated which email client you use and I'd suggest you visit the excellent Tutorial section of this Forum and read the item to set-up your defaults see link below. Hope this sorts it for you.
    Regards.

    I got mine to work.
    I installed the browser Opera.
    The following pictures explain how I got it to work--
