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):, java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-,  classpathx-mail-1.0-3jpp_1fc

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Package version, 

I have tried this on both ppc and i386

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-02 13:56:21 UTC
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

We need to implement a mail::XMailService to get mail working

Comment 3 Douglas Furlong 2005-06-02 20:26:15 UTC

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.

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-06 12:26:35 UTC
Submitted implementation upstream as
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.


[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep classpathx

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 ~/* 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.
