    short cut ctrl/enter (2002 sp2)

    I finally successfully reinstalled outlook xp to a new partition and got all
    my old email, contacts, etc back where they belong. Hallelulla! I used to be
    able to send messages with the keyboard short cut ctrl/enter. It doesn't
    work anymore. How do I reenable it?

    I think I know what the problem is... by default, Outlook now uses Word as it's e-mail editor. This shortcut will not work anymore because you are actually in a subset of Word (Word's shortcuts now work)... to turn Word as your e-mail editor off, from the main Outlook window, select Tools, Options, Mail Format tab. Deselect the option Word as E-Mail Editor. You should select the appropriate e-mail format you wish to use (HTML, Rich Text). Click OK... now the Cntrl+Enter key will work for you... enjoy... trish
