    My default email program is Windows Mail. I often attach open documents to email using the "send to" or "attach to email" option in the document's file menu. This works great in any document I use unless it is in pdf format. Pdf documents always launch Outlook instead of Windows Mail.

    Can anyone tell me how to get Acrobat to launch my default email program instead of Outlook?

    Since this is an issue with an interaction between two programs, rather than a single program, I am assuming it is an operating system (in this case Vista) issue, but if someone knows otherwise, I'd appreciate that information as well.

    Thanks,

    Hi Organizer,

    I've seen this problem before

    From Start Menu Run "regedit" and open it and then go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail

    In the right pane you sill see a value (default).

    Right click on that and select modify. If Windows Mail is not in there then type it in and close the editor.

    The change should be immediate.
