Windows 7: My Thunderbird Attachments Problem; more On

Windows 7 64bit
My Thunderbird Attachments Problem; more On


This relates to a Post here I made a few days ago re my problems with sending an email Attachment with Thunderbird.

Have been experimenting a bit, and would like to Post what I've learned, or think I've learned.

Am using Windows 7, Home Premium, 64 Bit OS.
Have the latest Thunderbird version.

Everything works just fine, except-

I can send and receive text, or even Excel Attachments just fine.
(works even if I Attach the desktop shortcut icon that goes to the document)

I cannot send an Attachment if I select the desktop shortcut icon as the Attachment if it goes to a web page that is html or has images, etc.

But if I put in as the Attachment, the actual URL, it works fine.

The desktop shortcut, if I go to Properties, apparently has the full and complete URL, so it's hard (for me) to understand why it also doesn't work.

Might anyone have any explanations why this is so ?

I would much prefer just to send the shortcut as the Attachment, as it is quicker and easier for me, but it doesn't wokr. Why ?

Thanks again,

My System SpecsSystem Spec
