(Perhaps this really belongs in the bug #5299 thread?)

I have no idea what problems you had previously, or what caused the recent

But I can (and do) use `M-x report-emacs-bug' fine with Emacs releases 22 and 23
(and with pretests, before I reported the bug). It works fine in those releases

My mail client is Outlook, but I don't know if your mail client has anything to
do with your problems using `M-x report-emacs-bug'.

Something was changed since the Emacs 23.1 release, so that this became broken.
It _is_ a regression, at least for my use case with an external mail client
(Outlook). If it never worked for you, that's unfortunate, but that does not
mean that it never worked.

I don't think (but I don't know) that whatever enabled `report-emacs-bug' to
work previously was Outlook-specific. It might have been something
Windows-specific (dunno). It might have been something specific for use with an
external mail client (any external client) - dunno. But I doubt that it was
something Outlook-specific.
