Re: SendObject Isn't Available Now
I was finally able to fix it. We use Thunderbird for our email, Windows XP SP3, Office XP SP2/XP3. When Access quit working for SendObject, it was also brought to my attention by other users that Word, Excel and even Adobe Reader were all unable to attach a document to an email from within the respective program. Creating a new message from within Thunderbird and then attaching the saved file still worked...obviously no help for the access problem.
I ended up repairing my Office installation and that led me to have to go into "Set Program Access and Defaults" to change Thunderbird to the default. Under the "Custom" section, I changed "Choose a default e-mail program" from "Use my current e-mail program" to "Mozilla Thunderbird" and now it works fine. Apparently it needed to be specified and not defaulted to "current e-mail program."
When I had installed Thunderbird on each machine, I had set the email default in the Internet Options ->Program section (which never changed), but it appears that I also needed to set it in Program Access and Defaults. I read that a bunch of times in my searching and assumed that because I had set it in Internet Options that it was the same. It was not.
I'm still interested to find out why this happened. I assume it was some Windows Update, but don't know for sure. If anyone knows, it'd be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the long-winded reply, but it baffles me. I hope this helps.
