MAPI using incorrect Email Program

I think this is an easy question if not I will increase the points.

I have an app that is using the Microsoft MAPI Controls 6.0.  On my development machine I (at one time) had MS Outlook 2000 as my default email program.  My default email application is now Outlook Express and has been for some time.

I spent about 4 hours yesterday trying to figure out why my application was not sending any mail.  The code worked fine, no errors etc...

However an accidental click on Outlook 2000 showed me that my app was working, it was just placing all the email into Outlook 2000.

The reason I want to use the default email is that I want the application to place the email being sent into the "Sent Items" folder.

Is there some setting I'm missing.  Apparently it's ignoring the default email application and using Outlook 2000 regardless.
