I recently updated my XP Office 2003 with the latest updates from MS.
(Primarily SP1 I think)

Now Outlook (which isn't even installed on my system) has insinuated itself
as the Right-Click SendTo app instead of OutlookExpress. It shows an email
window, similar to my Outlook Express, but it has no Address Book associated
with it. I checked ControlPanel... Outlook is not installed.

How do I put OE back as my SendTo application?

Thanks in advance,
Al Camp

Shenan,
Thanks a lot. That did the trick...
I had tried changing it through the SendTo directory, but was
unsuccessful.
Sure wish "MS updates" wouldn't do these things!
Thanks,
