Email from Word 97 in Vista

I have Word 97 running on Vista Business.

When I try to send an email through Word

File - Send to - Mail Recipient

I get an error message that states log on failure, you must log on exchange
to access address book.

I am using the Vista Mail program. How do I enable the mail recipient option
in Word to recognize Vista Mail?

You're probably not going to get it to work, as Office 97 is not supported
in Vista.
Here's the article on Office versions supported in Vista.

You either have to spend a kidney to get Office 2003 or 2007 or revert
back to XP. 97 does not work well in Vista as you have seen.

Control Panel | Default Programs
Make sure Windows Mail has all of its defaults.
