ArtRage is a free painting program based on natural media and tools. In other words, it’s designed to work and feel as much as possible like real paints, chalks, and so on. I was very impressed with it. It has one of those non-standard but intuitive interfaces where you can just start clicking around, and you’ll see how stuff works. And the real-media effects are remarkable. A single stroke of oil paint:
So, it's trying to mail something to somebody.
The ‘Send Painting as Email’ option in the File menu uses the windows MAPI messaging system to create an email using your email client. On most machines that have MAPI, ArtRage recognises your MAPI email client and sets itself up silently for operation. On most machines that do not have MAPI set up you will be warned that it is not set up properly when you try to use the ‘Send Painting as Email’ option.
We have received reports that on some machines ArtRage is reporting a problem with MAPI when launched. This seems to be because the machine is set up for MAPI with a MAPI client that is not recognised by our request to the OS to see if it exists.
The message does not indicate that the application won’t work, but you will not be able to use the ‘Send Painting as Email’ option. We will look in to the cause of the message appearing at that point, it should not appear until you attempt to use the MAPI functionality.
ArtRage is free with absolutely NO strings attached. No ads, no spyware, no registration, no timeouts. We did it because we wanted people to have the technology.
I'm really sorry for any confusion the Mapi bug has caused - Absolutely NO information is sent from ArtRage anywhere, anyhow, anytime.
