When you try to send a document to a mail recipient in Outlook 11, the Send or Send a copy button is missing from the toolbar.
This problem occurs because there is no default profile set for Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2003 is set as the default e-mail program.
To resolve this problem, you must create an Outlook profile. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Mail icon.
  3. Click Show Profiles.
  4. In the Mail dialog box, click Add.
  5. Follow the prompts of the Inbox Setup Wizard.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
