In Outlook 2010 64 bit, if I send a new message, that open up a non-modal window. I can return to the main window to do other tasks such as look at a calendar.

However, if I send the mail through MAPI from other office application (e.g. PowerPoint 2010 as shown below) the doalog is modal.

PowerPoint 2010 Save and Send

Is there a way to make it non-modal? My workaround at the moment is to save the messsage as a draft and reopen it.
