ShowI don't see the E-mail command.

If you don't see an E-mail command, it might because you are using a Microsoft Office suite that does not include Microsoft Office Outlook, such as Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. However, even if you install Outlook as a standalone program, you still might not see the command. For more information about how to see the E-mail command, see KB 918792: E-mail command is missing.
