Default Email button on quick access toolbar

I'm using Word, in Office 2007. I just had to re-install everything as my HDD failed. In my old set-up I had an email icon on the quick access toolbar that would send the page I just finished writing by email direct.

Now when I add the only email icon/button that appears to be available from the customize menu, the icon/button has a paperclip and as such send the page I've just written as an attachment - which I don't want, I need to send the page open via Outlook as before but I can't figure out how I managed to customize it originally so it did what I wanted



Any help appreciated

Thanks

Click on the QAT customise button and select More Commands. Change the drop down to Commands Not In Ribbon. Scroll down and select Send To Mail Recipient.

Thanks...

Microsoft sure do complicate things with two very similar buttons that do quite different things i.e. 'Email' and 'Send to mail recipient', it would be less hassle if these two buttons were suitably placed next to each other so you can at least investigate their difference - makes you wonder why they did that as previous incarnations were far easier !!!!
