Outlook 2007 on Term Server 2008 Send Word as Email

Posted on 2011-05-13

My users just want to send a Word document without having to turn it
into an attachment. I was able to place the command in Word that
allows us to do that. For some reason Words wants to use Windows Mail
instead of Outlook to send the message.

I changed all the file associations to Outlook, but Windows Mail
comes up to send a Word doc as an email. Any ideas? It seems to only
happen when the users are connected to the Windows 2008 Terminal

    You need to set the registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE\\Clients\\Mail default value to be:
    Microsoft Outlook
