Our users will open a new email which they use as a blank slate. They then
select several files from their documenst folders, right click and do a send
to mail recepient which opens a new email and attaches the files. Now they
want to drag the attachments to their blank email. This worked in Office
2003 but not 2007. Are there work arounds?

Err if they are doing "send to" mail recipient why are they then duplicating
their work by dragging the attachments to another blank email?
Sounds like some "education" is required.

if it worked in 2003, it was because they used a send to shortcut they made,
not the Sendto command in windows. The sendto command is always modal - it
needed saved and closed before you can use outlook again.

If they have explorer open, they can drag directly from explorer to the
"blank slate"
