I have windows 7 64 bit with Outlook 2010 32 bit

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
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"

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
