In Win ME the "send to" folder is a hidden folder inside your windows folder. To display it, open up "my computer" go to tools at the top then select folder options and put a tick in show hidden files and folders....
Then navigate to it using windows explorer.
Open the "send to" folder and you will need to create a
"Mail Recipient.MAPIMail" file in the SendTo folder. To do so, use the following steps.
Right click, point to New, and then click Text Document. Name the document "Mail Recipient.MAPIMail" (without quotation marks).
When you are prompted to verify that you want to change the file name and its extension, click Yes.
Thats it ! You should now have a Mail Recipient on your send to menu.
You can add other programs by dragging and dropping them into the same folder (A shortcut will be generated that shows on your send to list)

Let us know how you go !

You can't send a file to a already created e-mail in the way you refer to except as an attachment.

Mail Recipient.MapiMail will open your default mail program with your file attached and ready to send.

No ! You need to create it in your "send to folder"

Follow my steps above so you can find your "send to" folder

Then once you have it open You need to create a Mail Recipient.MAPIMail file by following these steps.


1. Make sure you are in your "send to" folder
2. Right Click on a blank area within the folder and scroll down to New then select Text Document.
3.Change the name of the Text Document to "Mail Recipient.MAPIMail" (without quotation marks).
When you are prompted to verify that you want to change the file name and its extension, click Yes.

Thats it, basically all you are doing is creating a text document in your "send to" folder and renaming it.
