Rachel,
Click the disclosure arrowhead (little triangle thingy) to the left of the word "Internet".
You should then see three choices: Proxy, Search, and E-mail. Click E-mail
The only thing this choice will allow you to do is to set the e-mail client by either typing
in the entire path, or browsing the file system and selecting it. 

If you select "OpenOffice->Preferences..." and your dialog does not behave as described,
it's likely that something's wrong with your AOO installation.
