Read a similar question and have the same problem however, I have MSoft
Word2003 and Outlook 2003. I'm trying to make Word the editor
for Outlook email. When I follow the online help directions I've copied here:
Turn Word on or off as your default e-mail editor for all new messages

From the main Microsoft Outlook window, click the Tools menu, click Options,
and then click the Mail Format tab.
Select or clear the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box.

the options are there under Mail Format, but they aren't highlighted where I
can click them. Your response was that they need to be the same version
and mine our. any other suggestions. Thanks

these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type the following command in the
Open box, and then click OK:
