    Hi,

    I'm running WinXP Pro x64 and Office 2003 standard with all the latest
    patches and updates, and I'm using Outlook 2003 for email.

    In Windows Explorer, when I select Send To > Mail Recipient, Windows
    wants to use Outlook Express 6 instead of Outlook 2003.

    How can I force it use Outlook 2003?

    I searched the net and microsoft.com for a solution but nothing
    applies to my situation.

    I was using WinXP Pro 32-bit until last November and Windows was
    correctly using Outlook 2003 with Send To > Mail Recipient.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sincerely,
    Richard

  2. Just to clarify that you have checked IExplorer->Tools->Internet
    Options to see if the default mail is (still) set to Outlook and has
    not magically become Outlook Express.

    Yes, I had already verified this, and looking at it again, under
    Programs, it shows Microsoft Office Outlook as e-mail program.

  4. Hello Richard,
    Yep this correct. You are using a 64-bit program in Windows Explorer which
    then loads a 64-bit version of the mail client.
    the Sendto calls a 64-bit dll directly to make the call and since it's in a
    64-bit program, it's limited to loading 64-bit (thus Outlook Express) not
    the 32-bit DLL which would call Outlook
    You would need to load a 32-bit version of Windows Explorer to open Outlook
    rather than Outlook Express when using Send To..

    not displayed on computers that are running an x64-based version of Windows

    Works properly in Vista x64. But, I'm also using Office 2007 so the fix may
    be there.
    (Right-click -> Send to -> Mail recipients opens a new message in Outlook
    2007.)

    Yes there was code written specifically to change this in Windows Vista.
