Thanks for the reply. I have LibreOffice version as
loaded by default for my Fedora 35 and also have
LibreOffice downloaded from libreoffice.

With both I have tried a simple saved file with the word
test in it. File is saved. Have Tools / Options / Internet /
Email set to /usr/bin/WSENDTO (Thou I did also try using
the direct path to program as well.).
Strange - but in all the years I've been using LO Writer and email, I've never thought or had 
reason to look at that setting. But now that you've made me curious, I've had a look to see what 
I've got in Tools / Options / Internet / Email and it informs me that my email program is :  

I've no idea what that is. I've used Thunderbird in conjunction with Linux and LO for many years 
and it just worked.

Thanks again for the quick response. Don't know if it is
trying something else. In browser I can type  and it pulls up email client with
no problem. Just seeing nothing with libreoffice, but the
macro works fine.

I thought I'd try to find out a bit more about 'sensible-lomua' which is what exists by default in 
my Tools / Options / Internet / Email.  I guessed that the lomua was Libreoffice mail user agent 
and apparently that has been inherited from OpenOffice where it was 'sensible-oomua'.

There was a bug opened in 2011 by someone who had a similar problem:

Their solution was simply to replace 'sensible-lomua' with 'thunderbird'  (without the quotes and 
without any path).
