When my college installed office she said yes to use word as email editor for outlook or the old exchange client - How do I undo this choice ?

There are both outlook and exchange installed on the machine. And I didnt remember to ask the user if word was the editor in both, or only in outlook.

I think the version was outlook express, but I cant remember which version that comes with Office 97.

- Im far from perfect, and I will not ask the user again, but I will give you a lot of points for ALL the answers:

1. How do I remove the word editor from Exchange.
2. How do I remove the word editor from Outlook.
3. How do I remove the word editor from Outlook Express.
