    Can't Find Word as Email Editor (Outlook 2000)

    I used to use Word as my email editor. A few days ago, when I try to use Word as my email editor, the system says "... Word is either busy or cannot be found ... " . Why ??? My Word is fine.

    What operating system do you use?
    Have you re-booted since the problem began?

    Interent Explorer > Tools > Options > Programs . . .
    What program is set for E-mail?

    I use Windows 2000 and Outlook 2000. My internet explorer uses outlook as email program and word as HTML editor.

    Sometimes if Word is already open Outlook can not find it. I think this is a known issue (bug), I know I have seen report of it before.
