Want "File, Send to" to use Outlook instead of Outlook Express

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
