Hello NeWcS and Wintings,

This can help show you how to restore this Send To - Mail Recipient context menu item. Be sure that you also have your email client program (ex: Windows Live Mail) set as the default program with all of it's associations set to is as well.

Solution to missing send to did not work

I have tried following the steps in the various solutions to the missing send to mail recipient in Win7 but my context menu still doesn't include it. I have put in a new copy of Mail Recipient.MAPIMail but the context menu still doesn't show it. I'm running Win7 64 bit Pro and Outlook 2010.

Thanks in advance for any additional suggestions. Should I copy the entire send to folder from default user?

I suppose you could try renaming the "send to" folder and copy the one from another user account (assuming it works there) just to see if that fixes it. If not you can delete the copied folder and rename the "send to" folder to go back where you were. Most likely, the right way to do it is to follow Brink's tutorial very carefully.
