Currently, if I select File/Attach to Email, Adobe Reader tries to open Outlook. Similarly, if I click on an email address within a PDF file in Adobe Reader, it tries to open Outlook.
I want it to open Gmail within Google Chrome.
Mailto links and email addresses from other programmes correctly open a new email in Gmail.
What settings do I need to change in Adobe Reader to have the same behaviour?
Using: Adobe Reader 10.1.2, Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
From Acrobat Help:
(Windows) Change the MAPI settings in your email application. Acrobat and Reader use the Messaging Application Program Interface (MAPI) to communicate with your email application.
Most email applications come with MAPI settings to handle this communication.
For more information on configuring your email applications, see the email application’s Help.
As you need some "Application to handle MAPI", just settings in Reader will not do. the solution is that you download Affixa (www.affixa.com - free for single email account, small program) and configure it for your Gmail account (works with other webmail accounts as well).
Additional bonus is, that then you can send attachments to gmail webmail from any program which previously tried to open outlook.
