Custom send method using thunderbird email client fails


Recommended Posts

Currently on 5.23 Im trying to use a "custom comman-line" send method, consisting of a call to thunderbird email client (3.1.7). The call works well to begin with, the send mail form comes up nicely with the sound file attached. But when trying to send the mail I get error message: Cannot open temporary file C:\Users\jonas\AppData\Roaming\NCH Swift Sound\Express\Send\0-62 2011-01-31 100402.mp3 , Check your settings for "temporary folder". When I check that folder, thet mp3 file seem to be non-existent. Using windows vista sp2.

 

What could be wrong here? When I initally set it up yesterday, I also got this error. Then later it worked. Then today when i redo it, it appears to be broken again. So its like an intermittent problem somehow.

 

(I initially used the standard Email method, but didnt like the fact that I cant control the automatic contents of the resulting email, it looks machine-maid. Furthermore, this automatically formatted email format was repeatedly rejected by the hotmail/live mail servers and discarded as spam/junkmail, which wasnt so nice.)

Sorry, I forgot to supply the command line:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe -compose attachment='"%filepath%"'

 

As I said earlier, the mp3 file doesnt seem to be in the temporary folder. I can see the .dau files that constitute the message, but no trace of

the corresponding mp3 file.

I think the temporary file is deleted when the custom command exits, and thunderbird.exe is exiting as soon as the compose window is opened.

Yes, that sound very likely. Seems like I would need to be able to call the sendmail program directly, not via the main thunderbird exe. Problem is thats the only call method I could find in a quick glance, in the online-mozilla help. Thanks for responding!
