Can't use use (Mail Recipient as attachment) Word

Word 2000 will not let me email a document as an attachment. I put the "Mail Recipient (as attachment)" button on the tool bar, but it is greyed out.
I did the same on another computer and it worked perfectly, so why won't it work on my main machine? I use WXP, Word 2000 and Outlook Express on both machines.
Using Send To... is a waste of time as it only has "Mail Recipient", a clumsy device which requires several steps to attach the document.
The help file is of little use as it instructs me to go to Tools--Options--General tab and tick the box labelled "Mail as attachment". The box is already ticked so what now?

Please can someone help me?
