[sane-devel] Mail Setup Problem

Xsane (Version 0.97 installed on a stable (Sarge) Debian box with 
apt-get) works beautifully with my Epson USB scanner and printer.

My only problem is in trying to email an image.  I have entered the mail 
setup information exactly as I have for Mozilla.  When I try to transmit 
  the project the mail project screen first displays a message 'sending' 
and then a message 'From entry not accepted'.

I don't where this rejection occurs.  My ISP insists they do not reject 
any transmission so the problem must be with the software.

When I clicked on help I got a message:

	Failed to execute document viewer: /usr/bin/sensible-browser:
	No such file or directory

In fact, there is such a file but, although I have changed its ownership 
to root:tom and its permissions to 776, clicking on help still gives the 
same failure message..  This was not a show stopper as I went to 
www.xsane.org/doc and read the mail setup instructions there.

Any suggestions?
