    Send file to mail receipeint no longer an option

    When I right click to send a file I no longer get option of sending to Mail
    Recipient. Only choices which come up are: blue tooth, zip folder,
    documents, fax, memory stick, dvd, H drive. Can you tell me how to restore
    this option.

    Try this: go to Default Programs, which you can access
    either from the Start menu or the Control Panel,
    then click the first item: "Set your default programs."
    After a few seconds a list of programs comes up.
    Click on Windows Mail. If all is well, it will respond
    "This program has all its defaults."
    If it reports less than all (3) of its defaults, fix it by selecting
    the first option indicated by a green arrow.

    I did as you said. Defaults were properly set. I tried again and still don't
    get the option of send to mail recipient when I right click on a file, as I
    did before.

    The only other suggestion I have is to upgrade to Windows Live Mail:

    Create a zero byte file named

    Mail Recipient.MAPIMail

    in your SendTo folder.

    >> but u still have no option in the send to menu

    You mean none of the entries are listed in the Send To menu?

    Are you able to access the SendTo folder of your user account?
