[CLOSED] OWA ActiveSend 8.1.0

The reports were built with DevStudio 764.

Anyone using Activesend to pass email address variables from webfocus report to OWA?

We have a report that lists an agents name and when the user clicks the name it brings up a blank email message and populates the email address and subject line with variables passed from the HTML page. It was working fine with XP and the old version of Activesend but now that we have moved to Win7 and Activesend 8.1.0 it has stopped working.

This works fine with regular Outlook but unfortunately we cannot provide Outlook to all our outside users.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am working with Messageware but they have yet to reply with any help.

Thanks
JV

Hi JV,

Have you heard back from Messageware about this? I wasn't able to locate any information either internally or on the Web about this.

You mentioned that after moving to a different OS and version of Activesend, it stopped working. Does the blank email message come up at all, or does it come up and then fail to populate?

Thanks and regards,

Kathryn

They keep sending me examples with hardcode in the link, It works fine like that but that is not the issue.

Yes the message comes up but it does not populate the email address or the subject.

Thanks

Hi JV,

Would you happen to have any documentation on the old version of Activesend where it describes how they're reading the variables being passed in to populate the email address and subject?

Thanks and regards,

Kathryn

Oh and this process works fine from FireFox.

We have updated to IE 10 but I did put IE 8 back on the test machine with no luck.
Thanks

Sorry and the version we are using now is 10.5.4. My laptop has not been updated. We also went to Exchange 2013 which may also have something to do with it.

Thanks
