Right Click Send to Mail - Used to be OE now changed to MSN/Hotmail

I installed MSN via Verizon DSL.  Now when I right click on a file and select Send To, it invokes MSN/Hotmail rather than OE.  How do I revert back to OE?

   Make OE the default email handler.  With OE open, go to Tools > Options. On the General tab, select Make OE the default email handler.

Im more than confident that one of the answers above is correct way. There is a third way i will tell you just for the sake of it:

(Applies to Windows XP Only)

1. Goto control panel
2. Goto Add/Remove Programs
3. On the left hand side choose "Set Program Access and Defaults"
4. Fill in the information there. Best to use the "Custom" options and only change the email bit

Anyway im sure the solution is above somewhere!
