Sendto Shortcut not displaying

Pentium 4 UNKNOWN

Specs: XP Pro, P4 3.0ghz 512mb
I have opened up the Sendto folder where the items that are available when you Right Click a file etc are listed, and created a New item.
The new item is a New Email shortcut from Outlook(2003).
The icon appears in the Sendto folder, and works if i double click it.
BUT, if i navigate to any picture or document, and right click on it and select Sendto, the New Shortcut is NOT listed.

How can i get this to work.

The idea is that the Send to mail Recipient does not default to mail in HTML, and add a signature, but an Outlook New Mail shortcut will, but i cannot seem to get it to be in the Sendto list.

I have removed other options previopusly listed, and they are now gone, i can also place a mspaint shortcut in the Sendto folder, and it works, but the Outlook New Mail shortcut will NOT show up in the list.

I tried Right clicking on the desktop and selecting New>Shortcut.
In the dialog box i put, mailto:
then next and called it "Send item via Email".
Dragged and dropped it to the Sendto folder.
But it also would not be displayed in the Sentto list.

Any idea's on a fix, or what i am doing wrong?

I am not sure, but your listed items of what you
did to do it, do not match what the article shows to do.

Sure you
Dragged and dropped it to the Sendto folder.

Article says
# Add a destination by doing one of the following:

* Use the drag-and-drop operation to move the item that you want to the SendTo folder; to do so, right-click, and then click Create Shortcuts Here.
I really do not understand the operation.
Says to drag and drop by right clicking ???

Tried dragging and dropping.
Tried using the Sendto folders menu >File>New>Shortcut etc...

Tried cut/pasting the shortcut, tried creating a shortcut of the shortcut and placing it there, to no avail.

Tried the same on my PC at home, same thing.

Idea's ?

Which SendTo folder did you open? There is more than one. Maybe you added it to the wrong user.

I did this to get to the folder:
Start>Run>Sendto(in dialog box) and the folder displayed.
