Changing Your Email Client in LibreOffice to Thunderbird

For some reason that I can't fathom, the default email client in LibreOffice is something called sensible-ooomua. When you try to browse for a different client, you get the following error message:

There's an easy fix! In LibreOffice:

  • Click on Tools in the main menu.
  • Click Options... in the drop-down menu.
  • In the left-hand pane, expand the Internet option.
  • Select the E-mail option.
  • Delete the text string sensible-ooomua from the E-mail program text box.
  • Type thunderbird (or the name of your preferred client) in the text box (yep, it is that simple).
  • More properly, type usr/bin/thunderbird in the text box.
  • Use the browse button (to the right of the text box) and browse to usr/bin/thunderbird and then click Open.

Next time that you want to send an email from LibreOffice, this should open Thunderbird (or your chosen email client) and start a new message.
