Send an email to "tasks (shared)" in Outlook 2007

(My Outlook is in french, I'm translating the words of the interface of Outlook to what I think it is in english)

In Outlook 2003, it was possible to right-click an email, choose "send to" and select "tasks (shared)" and select the user I wanted to create a task for (by using the email). (I have some employees that I quickly assigned tasks by this method).

In Outlook 2007, I could still right-click an email and choose "send to", but the item "tasks (shared)" is no longer available.  I could could only choose "tasks", to create a task to myseft, I'm no longer able to assign a task to others with the function "send to" ...

What must I do to bring it back ?

    Hi, mfecteau.

    Sorry, but I'm confused.  Outlook does not have a "send to" selection on the right-click menu in either 2003 or 2007.  The only "send to" menu I know of is the one that's available in the operating system.

    Is the shared tasks folder visible in the folder pane?
