How To Fix Send to mail Recipient Missing Issue In Windows 7

This problem has come up several times in recent weeks, but it dates back a few years, possibly back to Windows 98 days. The solution is about as simple as it gets though (and works on all versions of Windows).

If you are missing the Mail Recipient shortcut in the Send to folder or it’s not working:


  1. Go to the SendTo folder.
  2. Right-click and choose New > Text Document to create a text file in the folder.
  3. Rename the file MailRecipient.MAPIMail (do not use .txt extension).
  4. Press Enter.

Done. I think it takes longer to find the Send to folder than it does to fix the problem.
