    I am having an issue sending attachments directly from any application outside of Outlook. Example: I try to send an excel spreadsheet from excel using the send to option in the file menu. When I do, it loads up outlook and attaches the excel file to a new message. When I hit send to send the message after addressing it, it does nothing. No errors, just nothing. Here is what is wierd. I can hit the save icon and it will save the message in my inbox. If I go to my inbox, select the message and hit forward, it comes up completely addressed as I had done earlier. I click send and it goes.
    It's a minor irritation but, I would like to find out why I can send an attachment from a external app without going through these extra steps. I have tried it with Word 2003, Excel 2003, IE7 and a few other apps, same results.

    Thank you in advance for your help in resolving my issue.
