In any of the Office apps there is the option to click on "File, Send To" to send the current file as an email attachment.  I would like this feature to use Outlook instead of Outlook Express.  We are using Office XP.  I fixed this one time before for someone, but the problem has returned and I cannot remember what I did to fix it the first time.  Please advise.  Thanks.

The IE thing only works for IE when clicking on a "mail to" link.

Sunray is right, setting the default email client like he suggested would set it as default in the whole of windows, not just for IE
