Cannot setup emails in QB

The QuickBooks Email option has been discontinued for the 2008 version, lenvdw.


You can send your forms and reports as a PDF file attachment. When you email your clients, just attach the document and send it to them manually.


Here's how:

  1. Open QuickBooks, and then pull up the form you want to send.
  2. Click File at the top, and then select Save as PDF.
  3. Click the Save in window drop-down arrow, and then enter the location where you want to save the file.
  4. Click the File name window, and then enter a file name.
  5. Make sure to indicate a .pdf extension after the file name.
  6. Click OK to save the file.
  7. Access your email account, create an email, attach the .pdf file you saved, and then send the email to your client.

I'd also suggest upgrading your QuickBooks to the latest version so you can use this feature. Feel free to visit our website and choose the version that fits your business needs:
