I am using thunderbird and when I click on the email photo button nothing happens.

How can I get the email photo button to work?

Thunderbird on the Mac does not provide a way for other applications to create a new mail message with attachments so it is not possible to do this. (See here in the Picasa for Mac help forum)

It looks like I might have to configure Mac mail to get it to work. – Paul May 27 '10 at 22:56
Yes it is unfortunate. I had the same problem with iPhoto not being able to send mail via Thunderbird. – Mark May 28 '10 at 7:24

It works with Mac mail but not any other non-Mac options.
