The "Send by E-mail" feature is problematic in PDF-XChange Viewer or PDF-XChange Editor.


Please note that it is necessary to set a "Simple MAPI" compatible email client as the default email client to use this function. Compatible email clients include:

  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Outlook Express
  • Windows Mail
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Eudora

Please note that if Eudora is used then it is necessary to adjust its preferences to set it as the default MAPI server.

PDF-XChange Editor

PDF-XChange Editor features the option of sending emails via SMTP, which results in minimal interaction from your mail server. If an SMTP server is not configured then PDF-XChange Editor will prompt for action to take. See here for further information.

Further information about SMTP is available here.
