1. You do not have access to your email service address book. The only way around it is to open up a new web service email in your internet browser, add the addresses in the To: field using its address book, and then copy and paste the addresses over into the Lightroom email.
When sending email from Lightroom 4 - File - Email Photos and using Outlook 2010, the sent message does not appear in the box Sent Items in Outlook. Why is that? If I want a proof that I have sent a message, I will have to send myself a copy.
I believe this is a bug. Please see the conversation -- and my posting -- in the Lightroom Community on Photoshop.com, and please chime in there so this gets the attention it needs! This is such an annoying bug.
LR 4.3 ...In Library module, "Email Photos" is greyed out. I tried email by using the export module but this picks up an email provider that I would rather not use. How do I change my default email to gmail?
Email from Lightroom suddenly stopped working today. I haven't updated Lightroom nor done anything else of that nature. So I removed my email and started over, now it refuses to validate the email I've been using for over 3 yrs with Lightroom.
I use gmail and have done for many years, should I be contacing Google?
Edit: (sorry for the late reply, I didn't have notifications set here)
Second edit: I did have notifications et here but didn't receive one.
Google settings last time I checked should be:
smtp.gmail.com port 465 ssl/tls
smtp.gmail.com port 587 starttls

I have tried both the 465 and 587, neither makes any difference, 'validation failed' is the response each time.
I have enabled POP and IMAP.
I tried disabling Avast Internet Security, again it made no difference.
I've solved the mystery!
I started using google's 2 step verification system a few days ago and on this occasion I needed to generate a one-off password.

Thanks Victoria for prompting me to dig deeper.
I use gmail. My lightroom photos are included in the body of the e-mail as opposed to being sent as attachments. Some recipients don't seem to be able to right click on them and save them to their computer (could be a computer issue or could be user confusion but it's frustrating to them), so I have to do the round-about thing of saving the photos as jpegs on my hard drive and sending them through my e-mail (which is frustrating to me). Is there a way to specify that photos should be e-mailed as attachments rather than in the body of an e-mail?
The first description of my photos is in the Title field. Additional information, if any, I put into the Caption field. Why can't I email photos with the Title or Title + Caption? I can do this when exporting to SmugMug.
I have saved them to the HD in three different places but cannot access them from LR to import them. I have saved them to downloads, pictures and desktop and I can see them when I click on HD, Users, pictures or downloads or desktop but they are not there when I click import, HD, and go to any of those sites. The material before and after them is there but they are not. Do I have to shut down then open again?Thanks.
I use Outlook 2010 to email photos. I believe I was sending pix in the body, not as attachments, but now they go out as attachments. I would like to send them in the body of the email - is that possible?
After setting up my email credentials successfully in Lightroom 4.4 Email Manager I discovered that there is a "full fledged" text editor and outgoing email generator with, styles, rulers, and font choices.
I cannot find any documentation on how the Editor and it's styles work, and if it can save templates that can be reused, say to send to clients for announcements.
Can anyone point me to the documentation/support for this hiden feature?
