Email Purchase Order.

When I attempt to email purchase orders, my email client is not being recognized and instead of my configured default email app (Thunderbird), Microsoft brings up a window to sign into my Microsoft account and wants me to pay for Office 365!  What?  How do I get Quickbooks POS to recognize my default email app?


Hello there, info,

There are several reported issues about configuring the default email using Thunderbird and Microsoft Office 365 in QuickBooks. We don't have the visibility to check your account here in the Community, so I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Point of Sale Support Team.

They have the tools to identify what causes this issue and can help you in letting the system recognize your default email, especially when sending purchase orders.

Please let me know if you have other concerns about sending transactions in QuickBooks. I'm just around if you need help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
