When I right-click a file in Windows Explorer and select Send To > Mail Recipient, Outlook 2007 invariably sets the email format to Plain Text.

This is really freaking annoying and I can't find an option to change it.

How can I tell it to always use HTML format?

According to Microsoft (KB 234487):

To change the Sendto function to use the Outlook default message format, you need to create a shortcut in the Send To folder that calls an Outlook formatted message window.
