When you use Send To Mail Recipient, Outlook sends the message in plain text format and doesn't include your outlook stationery or signatures. The solution to this is to create an Outlook shortcut in the send to menu.

To do this

  1. Open the send to folder (in windows 7, click start and type "shell:sendto" into the search box then click the shell:sendto folder to open it.)

  2. Right click a blank area of the folder and choose New, Shortcut (this brings up the create shortcut dialogue box)

  3. Copy the file path below for your version of Outlook and paste it into the box.

For 32 bit Outlook

“C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice14OUTLOOK.EXE” /c ipm.note /a

For 64 bit Outlook

"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice14OUTLOOK.EXE" /c ipm.note /a

Now Click next and type a name for the shortcut it can be anything you want. (I called mine Mail Recipient OUTLOOK) you can delete the old mail recipient shortcut if you want to.

Thats it, now when you right-click a file in Windows Explorer, and choose Send To, “Mail Recipient Outlook” (or whatever you named the shortcut). Outlook will open and create a new message with the file attached. Your default stationery and signature will be included.

Note if your Outlook.exe file is stored in a non standard location then after point 2 above you will need to click the browse button and point to the copy of outlook that is installed on your system.

Once you have done this you will need to add /c ipm.note /a to the end of the file path. Remember to leave a space after OUTLOOK.EXE"

You could open a new clean mail and drag the file to the email. But Im guessing you want a faster way ofc :-)

Thanks Beyond_Life but I made the new shortcut in send to folder as Simon H sugested and it works perfectly. I can now right click anything and sent it with my signature attached. Well apart from folders that is. Outlook doesnt seem to like you sending folders for some reason but this has always been the same.

Awesome! I've been wanting this for years.

NOTE: I had to add tweak the file path by adding a few backslash marks:"C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice14OUTLOOK.EXE" /c ipm.note /a

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.
       
      [attachment=0]outlook-2016.jpg[/attachment]
       
      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      "c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
       
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      Let me know how this works for you!

      Hey Mr Groove! Love the site and really enjoyed your last article!
       
      I have an idea for a new article on groovypost for you! You need to write something on all the different search syntax that can be used in outlook 2007!
       
      I only use a few of the features but would love to get the inside scoop.
