Description Douglas Furlong 2005-05-20 12:11:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Fedora/1.0.4-2 Firefox/1.0.4 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-188.8.131.52-40jpp_18rh, classpathx-mail-1.0-3jpp_1fc How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to Mail Merge Wizard in Open Office 2. Try to select the e-mail mail merge 3. Actual Results: Option is grayed out, and unselectable Expected Results: I should be able to select the e-mail option for mail merge. Additional info: Package version openoffice.org-1.9.100-1, java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-184.108.40.206-40jpp_18rh, classpathx-mail-1.0-3jpp_1fc I have tried this on both ppc and i386

indeed, interesting. Try editing .openoffice.org2.0/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Writer.xcu and change the "false" under EMailSupported to "true" and restart ooo and see how much further you get .
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-02 14:40:16 UTC
Ack!, http://user-faq.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=authors&msgNo=7907 We need to implement a mail::XMailService to get mail working
Comment 3 Douglas Furlong 2005-06-02 20:26:15 UTC
Doh. 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 :\
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-05 13:34:25 UTC
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/
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-06 12:26:35 UTC
Submitted implementation upstream as http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=51638 I'll build it for fedora now and see how it goes.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-07 12:36:45 UTC
Available in rawhide 1.9.114-2
Comment 7 Douglas Furlong 2005-07-17 09:11:33 UTC
Heyah Caolan. I've tried the latest build of open office from raw hide, and classpathx-mail from main, and the option is still grayed out. Versions... [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep openoffice.org openoffice.org-core-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-math-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-graphicfilter-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-pyuno-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-draw-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-impress-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-writer-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-calc-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 openoffice.org-xsltfilter-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5 [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep classpathx classpathx-jaf-1.0-2jpp_3fc classpathx-mail-1.0-3jpp_1fc I know that it is not version 114 would that be a problem?
Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-17 11:12:59 UTC
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 ?
Comment 9 Douglas Furlong 2005-07-17 12:47:48 UTC
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.
