Microsoft Office 2003 & Windows Live Mail

When I was using Outlook Express, I could point Word & Excel to it to e-mail documents & spreadsheets. Since I have installed Windows Live Mail, all e-mails go to Outlook, which I have never initialized.

Does anyone know how to link Office applications & Live Mail? I've looked everywhere I could think of with no joy.

I use a Dell Inspiron 1900 with Windows X.

How so...

I am not exactly sure what you mean by "I could point Word & Excel to it to e-mail documents & spreadsheets"

If you mean which program launches when you click on an e-mail link in one of those applications, you will want to set Windows Live Mail as your default e-mail program, which is an option available through the Control Panel.

Is my face ever red!

Apparently when I replaced Outlook Express with Windows Live, my default e-mail program became Microsoft Outlook. I looked all through Microsoft Office & Windows Live but never thought to look at Internet Options.

After all these years, you would think I might have learned something.

Thanks for the help. Problem solved.
