Problem Description

Error message received when using SecureStore: Unable to obtain the application proxy for the context.

Cause:

Secure Store service is not running on the web application.

Fix:

  • From Central Administration choose Application Management
  • Next Choose Manage Web Applications.
  • Click the name of the web application your code is running on
  • Then click Service Connections in the ribbon
  • In the dialog that appears check both “Secure Store Service” and “Secure Store Service Application Proxy”
  • Click OK.

Problem Description

Error messages include:

  • Message Box: Could not perform this operation because the default
    mail client is not properly installed ( This happens at 76 recipients
    )
  • Javascript Error: The data area passed to a system call is too
    small ( This happens at 77 recipients and above )

Reason:

The max Outlook can take is 75 recipients, at 76 it tells you have a
problem and at 77 and above your browser will simply convert the
mailto: href result to simply “” an empty string.

Additionally there is a simple 2048 character limit. So if
either of these limits are reached you have two many recipients.

Possible Fixes:

The most simple fix would be to have two mailto strings in javascript.


i.e. location.href = "mailto:one@mail.com;..."; location.href =
"mailto: two@mail.com...";
- or -
Build a server function to send a mail form.
