Recently (possibly post Service pack install) when I try and send email in Outlook I get the following error when I try and send email:

To rectify this I have done following:

- Run 'Repair Office' from my Office CD's
- Uninstalled and reinstalled office

Have searched the MS KB and google without luck - anyone help?

Ah ok. Usually people give a B if the comment lead them directly in the direction that finally fixed the problem. Like in this case although the repair didn't do the trick it got you to thinking about IE as the possible cause. :)
