It does seem counterintuitive, but you need to open Mail to change the default application for your e-mail. Once you hav launched Mail go to Preferences & click the General button. The top item is "default email reader." Change that to the app you want. You may need to click another button & OK the changes or restart Mail.
Hi Peggy, thanks for replying. It is much appreciated.
Unfortunatly it's not the issue - to Make Mail the default mail application.
The issue is how to make Pages, Numbers and Keynote - accept another mail application than Mail when sharing. When I try to share now with Postbox or Sparrow any iWork application only gives an error sound and nothing happens.
Thanks for trying to help out, though.
Hi Peggy. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
I might repeat my self: The problem is not selecting the default email client. You can do that in Mail, Sparrow, Postbox and Outlook too.
Setting anything else than Mail as default mail client is not the issue. Done! Easy!
What's the issue is to get iWork applications to accept it! After ML update my iWork apps only want to Share if Mail is standard mail client. Not if any other mail client is selected as standard.
Hope it clarifies
And once again, thanks for helping out.
Nop, but have complied and working with Mail now instead.
Mail is a good app, but has some issues with IMAP. Drafts keeps popping up even though they are send.
Annoying when you work within communication and you're not sure if you'll send your clients and partners the same mail 1, 2 or even 3 times.
I've made the selections in Mails settings to not save drafts on server, cause Mail obviously can not handle it.
All the best.
Jakob, have you done any maintenance lately on your computer? It could be cache files or other that isn't ok. Onyx is a free and very good maintenance application.
Repairing permissions seems to help in some cases after installing Mountain Lion
Restarting in Safe mode and then again in normal mode can help.
Deleting the iWork applications plist files could be tried.
I use Mountain Lion and all software is updated. Recently I started to use Sparrow as my default email client. My iWork documents cannot be shared directly from Pages or Numbers via share function. Even though I changed default client to Sparrow it does not work in iWork (screen attached). It does work in Safar though.
Have you already found a solution?
If you look at your screenshot, you will see that there is no menu option to "Send by Default Email Client" The only menu option is to Send via Mail. I don't imagine Apple wanted to provide support for problems with every possible email program, so they only provided a means to share with the one where they control the code.
