How do i start a new email message from the taskbar without having to open outlook? My OS is Windows XP Home and I use Microsoft Outlook 2003.

A simple way of doing this is:

Right click your desktop and select - New/Shortcut

In the dialogue box type - mailto:

Click Next and either accept the default name for the shortcut or type your own.

Click Finish and you now have a shortcut which opens a "New Mail" window without bothering OE.
