    I am trying to use Windows Mail, not Outlook Express as my main mail in
    Vista. It seems though I can only use outlook or outlook express...is that
    true?? If not, how can I change it?

    To use the Send To Mail recipient function in Office you need an Email
    Client with the full MAPI engine. Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird have the
    full MAPI engine, Windows Live Mail does NOT, but I'm not sure about Windows
    Mail or OE. If you have WM set as default email and the Send To function on
    Excel is not working, then I assume WM does NOT have the full MAPI engine.
    Nothing you can do about that I'm afraid...
