How to configure the Win2PDF Mail Helper Utility

Top  Previous  Next

You can open the Win2PDF Mail Helper Utility by going to:

 

   Start -> Programs -> Win2PDF -> Win2PDF Mail Helper

 

(for Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 users), or

 

by accessing the "Configure Win2PDF Mail Helper" start tile in Windows 8.

 

Once opened, the user interface will look like this:

 

gmail_mail_helper_sm

 

If "Use the default MAPI client" is selected, Win2PDF will send the email using the default email program (typically Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, or other native Windows Mail application) installed on the computer.  This is the default option.

 

If "Use the Win2PDF Mail Helper" is selected, Win2PDF will use the Win2PDF Mail Helper to send the email.  This will bypass the default Windows email program on your PC like Outlook, Windows Live Mail, or Thunderbird.

o"SMTP Mail Server Name" set to "smtp.gmail.com"
