On my new computer, we installed Office 2003, with outlook, etc.  When I
highlight a files, right click, and send to mail recipient as attachment, it
always brings up Outlook Express, which I dont ever use, or have contact info
stored.  How can I change the default program for sending these
attachments?

Thanks,
Dom

Or "Set Program Access and Defaults".
This is available on the Start Menu in XP and also in  Control Panel, Add Remove Programs.
 
You want to look under Choose a Default Email Program.
