I have a user at work that has a mac and uses etourage as her mail client. Problem is she likes to do file > send to > email, and it opens mac mail configuration. is there anyway to change that menu option to have it point to entourage instead?

thanks

Try changing Mail>Preferences>Default email reader to point to Entourage.

You have to set the default mail program from within Mail's preferneces (odd I know), as Levi said

Launch Mail, go to its prefernces and find the one for default mail program.

Set it to Entourage then quit Mail - Job done

Thanks agian for the help. That did solve the problem with word, but not with powerpoint. Powerpoint still opens a mac mail window, and word opens an entourage one. I went into powerpoint settings didnt have and option for email. Anyone see this before? If not and your not sure, where would be a good place to look for a fix? Sounds weird but thats what is happening.
