Outlook XP: When replying to a message and have VCARD attachment (as signature) Cursor goes to TO: line instead of BODY

I'm having a problem specific to Microsoft Office XP. Office XP is patched to Service Pack 3.

The problem is: When you have a VCARD attachment as a signature, and then reply to a message, the cursor goes to the To: line of the message instead of the body. I have tried this with Outlook 2003 and this isn't a problem.

Does anyone know a fix for this or is this just a problem with the software?

Thanks very much for your help in this matter.

Greetings, msCCare !

It is how Outlook XP is designed.  There is no setting to change the cursor location at startup.  

Try disabling MS Word as editor and see if cursor location change. If not, there is no way to change it.

Best wishes!

thanks very much for your help. I couldn't find documentation anywhere.

-Changing the default editor per suggestion didn't help, but good to know this is application specific.

Thanks again!
