Way back in Feb 2004 (375 tips ago!), the tip told you how to use Word as the editor with the Send to menu (the default Send to Mail recipient link uses the Outlook editor). By creating a shortcut in the Sendto folder, you could right click on any file in Windows Explorer and send the file as an attachment. Unfortunately, due to security changes, it doesn't work with Outlook 2007. To make it work, you need to add the attachment switch.
The command line in the shortcut will look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" /c ipm.note /a
The /m switch won't work in this usage with Outlook 2007. The /m switch allows you to fill in the address field and is supported as a command line but won't work with SendTo shortcuts. If you want to create a preaddressed message you'll need to enter the addresses and publish a custom form then change the /c switch to /c ipm.note.new_form_name.
Look for the Sendto folder at:
Windows 7/8 and Vista:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\SendTo
