Windows 7: Outlook 2003 Issue

Outlook 2003 Issue

I'm now using Windows 7 32 bit with Outlook 2003. When in Outlook, if I click on an email address, instead of launching my outlook editor (word) to send a message, it pops up a "Locate Link Browser" window. Can't seem to figure out how to get this to work correctly. Any ideas? Thanks -

This should help:
The Locate Link Browser dialog box appears when you open a Web link in an e-mail message in Outlook 2003

Thanks Irene, but that doesn't do it. It's not web links I can't get to it's email address links. Any thoughts on that aspect?
