    I've just had a problem with Outlook Express that I've never encountered before. When I right click on a document and select Send To, and then Mail Recipient, I get a message now that says-

    No profiles have been created. To create a new profile, use the Mail icon in the Contro Panel.

    Could this have been caused by any of three new security updates from Microsoft yesterday?

    I tried to remove them but it cautioned me that several programs on my computer may not work properly if I uninstall them. I send files to lots of people and I don't want the hassle of of creating a new profile every time I do.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you, Claymore,

    All I had to do was make Outlook Express my default mail handler. I mightn't have discovered it without your suggestions.

    Much appreciated.
