Description of problem:
When using the Mail Merge Wizard, the E-mail message option is grayed out.
There is a comment stating that Open Office was unable to find the Java Mail connection, and points me to Sun's website to find out more.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-1.9.100-1, java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-184.108.40.206-40jpp_18rh, classpathx-mail-1.0-3jpp_1fc
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Mail Merge Wizard in Open Office
2. Try to select the e-mail mail merge
Actual Results: Option is grayed out, and unselectable
Expected Results: I should be able to select the e-mail option for mail merge.
I have tried this on both ppc and i386
indeed, interesting. Try editing
change the "false" under EMailSupported to "true" and restart ooo and see how
much further you get .
We need to implement a mail::XMailService to get mail working
Does that mean you do not need me to try that fix you've mentioned?
I'm getting the feeling that this feature may be a while coming :\
Might not be too long, I've started and implementation, and it doesn't look
*too* hard. http://blogs.linux.ie/caolan/2005/07/05/email-mailmerge/
Submitted implementation upstream as
I'll build it for fedora now and see how it goes.
Available in rawhide 1.9.114-2
I've tried the latest build of open office from raw hide, and classpathx-mail
from main, and the option is still grayed out.
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep openoffice.org
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep classpathx
I know that it is not version 114 would that be a problem?
you don't need any classpathx stuff, just what you have installed. This is
probably because you ran it in the old OOo which didn't provide it. Try removing
your ~/.openoffice.org* directories and running it again and see if it makes it
become enabled ?
Deleting that directory made the difference, it is no longer grayed out.
I don't have time to test this just yet, but will try to some time this week.
