Win98se system with Netscape 7.1 for the browser, and OE 5.0 for email. But
SendTo "Mail Recipient" always wants to startup the NS mail program. I want
it to load OE mail. How?

Try this:
In the Windows\Send To folder right click the Mail Recipient
shortcut, get properties and modify the target line with the path
to OE.

Bill,
The "Mail Recipient" entry in SendTo is not a shortcut, but rather a 0KB "MAPIMAIL"
file, and does not have a Target line or a shortcut tab on the properties sheet.

See if this works:
Click Start> Settings> Control Panel> Internet Options> Programs tab.
In the "Internet Programs" section, click the drop-down box for "E-mail", and select
Outlook Express, then click OK.

OOPS, I looked at Mail Recipient Using Microsoft Outlook
The target line is:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\sendfile.exe"

Thanks for the heads up.
