Windows Live Mail is probably set as your default email client.
You need to change the default to Office Outlook:

Click the Start orb and choose Default Programs.
Click Set your default programs
Click Microsoft Office Outlook in the list on the left.
Now click Set this program as default at the bottom of the larger pane.
Click 'OK' to save and close.

do you mean server or client - this is outlook on your PC and what email service are you connected to ?

what exactly are you doing - Each Step to send a picture and at what point do you get the use windows live ?

I receive my email thru office outlook 2003 which i installed on my pc. When I was running Windows XP on my old pc, if i wanted to send a webpage to myself or tag a pic on FB and send it to my email, all i had to do was right and click on send page to and it would open up to "new" in my email. Now, when I try to do that with Windows 7, it wants me to use Windows Live email, which I don't have and don't want....Thanks!

Also, when I open up my default programs to follow your instructions, Microsoft Office Outlook is not an option there.
