This article will guide you on how to setup the Email button to work with your e-mail application on your computer (eg. Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird).

Eg.

 

Open Control Panel, select Programs, Default Programs, Set your Default Programs.

Select your e-mail application (eg. Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird), set this program as default, then choose the default for this program.

 

 

Choose “Select All” and click “Save”.

 

 

Go back to WooPOS and in your Printer and Local Settings set “E-mail Program:” to “Windows Default(MAPI)”.  WooPOS will now refer to your default mail client within Windows to generate E-mails.

 

 

 **NOTE: Please try other options if one option doesn’t work. Also, try restarting the computer if it doesn’t work initially.  Windows might require you to do this in order to allow the application to work as a default for the protocols you adjusted for it.**

 

You should see the e-mail like the example below when you click on the Email button.

If you use “Mail to Protocol” and you don’t see invoice PDF as an attachment, try to press CTRL-V key to attach the file (paste from clipboard).

You can create an HTML template file named EmailTemplate_Invoice.html put it into c:\woopos folder. The system will create a form letter email with customer information.
