Using Send To to email filename shortcut

I'm trying to find out if Windows XP has a way to email a filename shortcut by right-clicking on a filename in Windows Explorer and using the Send To > Mail Recipient option.  The email will be sent to people in the same organization with the same network drive mapping, so [i'm assuming] a shortcut will provide them access to the same file.  Emailing a shortcut is advantageous over the actual file, as the file size tends to be quite large and I'm trying to reduce network bandwidth by not having to email multiple copies of the same file.

Hi,

i cant test this with exchange as we use lotus here, but if i generate the shotciut and then right click it i can them send to mail recipient but you have to create teh shortcut first.

Works fine in notes as long as the network drives are mapped the same
