I am having a problem with a colleague who his trying to attach a document using the Send to Mail Recipient command.  Every time he does this it tries to set up an Internet connection wizard even though we are constantly online. It has worked previously but it has gone recently. We are currently on NT4 with Outlook 98 on Exchange 5.5.  Any ideas why it seems to be failing?

Look at your IE settings.
in the EMAIL field it might say Outlook Express instead of just Outlook.

If it does say Outlook Express change it to Outlook.

That worked for me.
