Design Review 2012 e-mail error

Design Review will NOT e-mail a DWF properly.  It apparently does NOT detect that the e-mail program is already up and running and attempts to start a second instance of the e-mail program.  This produces a fault that prevents one from e-mailing a DWF from within Design Review.

 

I do not know if this applies to "full" Outlook or not.  I use Outlook Express, as I do not need (or want) all the other bells and whistles and overhead of the full Outlook program.

 

Does anyone else have this issue?  Is there a 'hotfix' for this yet?

 

I have figured out two, far from optimal, somewhat similar workarounds.

 

1)  Save the file using 'Save As' ( temporarily on local drive as security will not allow attaching directly from server), go to e-mail program, start e-mail, attach file from local drive, delete temporary local file.

2)  Save the file using 'Save As' ( temporarily on local drive as security will not allow attaching directly from server), locate file with Windows Explorer, right click filename and select 'Send To' and 'Mail Recipient' (this auto-attaches file to e-mail), Send e-mail, delete temporary local file.

 

Anybody have any better ideas?
