Adobe Acrobat Reader and default mail client

To all:

My partner uses Adobe Acrobat Reader X for PDFs and Eudora Pro 7 for her e-mail client. She has Windows 7 64-bit installed to latest revisions and updates.

I have verified that Windows has identified Eudora as the default program for e-mail, but Acrobat still opens up Outlook e-mail whenever she presses the "attach to e-mail" button [in Acrobat]. I looked at the Acrobat forums and was unable to find a thread that addresses this issue.

Does anyone here have any ideas?
