3. Set the program to use to print ODT file

You can now define the program to execute when an ODT file is present in your email, in LibreOffice you also need to specify a command line, each program has it's own command line, here it is: -pt "%PRINTER%" "%FILE%".
That's mean it will send the command pt (for print) with the printer name (variable %PRINTER%) and the path to the file ODT (variable %FILE%) .

Conclusion on adding your own specific application

It is easy to use external program to print your specific file, just add new file extension without the dot (example: ghi), then select the program file and finally the command line if your program needs one.
