Examples...

This is happens in Office 2007/2010

In Windows Explorer, right click on file > Send To > Mail Recipient... This opens a modal new message window, I can't access anything else in outlook. So that bit of text from another email I wanted to copy/paste into the new email, can't.

In Excel, Send > E-Mail... This opens a modal new message window and locks out both Excel and Outlook. So the few cells of data I wanted to copy/paste into the email body, can't.

Is there anyway to prevent this? I don't want the new message windows to be modal.

Still the case in Outlook 2013. So irritating. –  Chris Nevill Aug 5 at 9:03

Have another instance of Outlook/Excel open. No other way to go about this
