i would update my anti-virus definitions to the latest and scan my computer
i would go to officesupdates.microsoft.com and apply the latest service packs and updates.

maybe also try turning off Word as your email editor. instructions are in Outlook Help. also notice 'Troubleshooting Word as your email Editor' also in Help...

There are a couple of things you can try with the format of the email:

1. Outlook defaults for plain text, you can try using html formatting or use plain text instead of html if that's how it's set now.

2. Since your getting a winword error. I would also suggest NOT using word as your default editor.

3. Both of these options are found under tools -> options -> mail format. Changing these options has fixed alot of problems for me. Good Luck.

I don't know if this will solve your problem or not, but I've had good luck using Detect and Repair when things get a little flaky with my install of Office 2K. It can be found on the Help Menu in any Office program. Be sure to have your Office 2K CD handy when you do this.
