If you are attempting to send an email to a distribution list by using the "New Email to Distribution List" command, then you'll need to have a locally installed email program such as Outlook or Thunderbird. A new email will be created in your default email program. It sounds like you might use web-based email, in which case the "New Email to Distribution List" feature won't work.

Note, this doesn't affect the ability for VueMinder to automatically send email reminders to distribution lists. It's only related to manually creating a new email.

I'm using thebat and emclient, thebat being the default.
Usually, when an app needs to launch an email, it automatically launch thebat which is logic but apparently it does not work with vueminder.
I will test for the third time now but after the first 2 attemps, it launches many ie crashed windows, computer goes low on resources, unresponsive and i have to reboot.

Hi Kynao, thank you for the information. There might be some incompatibility between VueMinder and The Bat. I'll investigate further. Also, please make sure Windows is configured to use The Bat as the default email program:

Same problem with emclient but apparently something went wrong on my computer as i have the problem with a basic test, ie a simple mailto:, example here http://www.thelin.net/laurent/labo/html/mailto.html so it's a problem on my computer and not vueminder

Thank you for the information. VueMinder also uses the simple "mailto" method for initiating a new email. I'm not sure what would cause that to break in Windows, but it does sound like it's not a VueMinder bug. If you figure out what is causing the problem, please let me know so I can file this information in case anyone else ever encounters the same problem.
