Using MS Word to send mail through Vista Windows Mail

Under XP when I wanted to send an email from MS Word, the program used
Outlook Express.
Even when I had MS Outlook installed with no email options.

Under Vista I can't send mail from MS Word.
I can make the mail, but there is no possibility to send the mail.
It goes to the outbox of MS Outlook.
I only use Outlook to manage my contacts and agenda. There is no
email-account defined in Outlook.

I use Windows Mail to send mails.

Is there a way as in XP to make Windows Mail default mailsender?

Maybe someone can help me out.

There is no Windows Mail in XP. There is OE or if you have Office Outlook.

In XP and if you have Outlook and Office you can select MS Word as your email editor

See if this helps.

On the Start menu, click on Default Programs.

Note: If Default Programs is not listed on your Start menu you
can access it through Control Panel -> Programs.

In Default Programs, click on the first item, "Set your default
programs".
In the "Set your default programs" dialog, click on Windows
Mail in the Programs box.
If you see "This program has 1 out of 3 defaults" listed under
Windows Mail in the right hand section, click on "Set this
program as default".
The line should change to "This program has all its defaults".
Click the OK button.

Open Word, create a document and see what happens when you try
to email it to someone.

Good luck
