What is the issue? I understand its not sending, but are you getting any errors?

Have you looked in your outlook app, anything in the outbox/sent folders?

Hi Brenton,

A quick fix would be to open Reckon Accounts software via "Run as administrator" when you right click on it. (you can go to the properties to permanently have this option enabled)

If this does not work you can also try this guide:

Kind regards,

bit hard to say Alex when Brenton hasn't really told us if they have that 'error' as such. Brentons post seems to say no errors at all!

Also this seems to be the default response now from Reckon when anything doesn't work. Run as Administrator. I really shouldn't have to say how bad this practice is!!

It better not be required in RA2016!

Hi Andrew,

I am jumping the gun but hopefully Brenton will reply with an error message for us to accurately diagnose the issue.

fixed ..... check your email default is outlook.  delete your pdf converter in your printers check one note is on the L port 1 2 or 3 or spare one

restart computer fixed.......yay

 I also found after restarting computer and opening quickbooks as long as your outlook is open and minimised whilst you press email on your quickbooks the switch to window dosent come up anymore it converts straight to email with outlook....that's even better news

Hi Brenton,

For the MAPI error code you can try this fix:

You will need to modify the QBW.INI file located at C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit\QBW.ini
and add the following lines at the bottom of the  file. 

To open it, right click, select Open With and choose Notepad:  Scroll to the bottom of the file and add:

[DEBUGGING]
SIMPLEMAPI=1

Close & Save the file then restart QuickBooks and try again.  

Kind regards,
Alex
Brenton

The error -30  matter is well explained on numerous search articles on this forum, such as this one:
http://kb.reckon.com.au/issue_view.asp?ID=3952

Also  the MAPI error is common.    Be sure that you've got Outlook as your default,  outlooklk running, and RECKON using Outlook as the default,  and take note of the steps in the article mentioned.

There are four elements involved in all this
1.  the operating systems defautls and rules
2.  the Reckon program trying to live in that environment
3.  the intermediary PDF creation program called upon by Rekcon (be sure you have only one of relevance)
4.  the email program that is going to send the PDF file in the end.

All four need to be in sync with one another.

When uninstalling/reinstalling and mixing/matching any of the above FOUR elements of independent software,  then there is need to ensure each is set right.

Your original comments didn't fully outline the status of these four elements in your case,  so I've only shared some general information to get you aware of the issues at sake here.
