Hi Marc,

On OSX having installed 3.3.1 choosing Send Document or other send
options produces no response and no log entries. Thunderbird was
selected from Internet options.

Yes, this doesn't quite work as intended...or at least, not as its
alleged to work on other platforms. From what I understand, you can not
simply point to the TB application bundle in your list of applications,
but have to drill down through the bundle's contents to point to the
thunderbird executable binary.

You also have to make sure when you want to send the document via e-mail
that TB is not already running, otherwise you will get an error message,
and nothing will happen.



I just determined that Acrobat has the same issue.

The SendMail doesn't know how to talk to your default mail client. 
Please select a different mail application to use.

Adobe points the finger at Mozilla, and mozilla reciprocates. Moreover,
setting thunderbird as your default mail client on OSX from MacMail will
NOT result in TBird being regarded as the default mail client by some
applications, lol.

There may in fact be a command line option for invoking a Tbird envelope
from inside the package without invoking a new instance of Tbird - seems
to me I had to address something like that on aix quite a few years ago.
Unfortunately I tried
/Applications/ -silent
and that did not work (resulted in the behavior you mention) and adding
quotes results in LO not being able to find an e-mail app.

Went back to look at my ancient version of NeoOffice and that won't even
start now....
