Sending Email With Word
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   14 years ago

Q: I have a new computer with Vista installed. I need to know how to send an attachment to an e-mail when the attachment was prepared on Word? Also if you have any courses for the Vista system, please let me know. Thank you. Jerry B.

A:If you have Word 97 thru 2003, the easiest solution is just to open the document, click on File > Send To > Mail Recipient. This will attach your document to an email automatically and allow you to send it to whomever you wish using Outlook.

I'm not sure where this is in Word 2007 - I confess... I have it sitting here in the box. Still haven't installed it yet! From what I read online, you have to click on the Quick Access Toolbar, select More Commands, select All Commands, then select Send To Mail Recipient.

See, I stick to my original impression of Office 2007 - they've just made EVERYTHING more difficult for those of us who are used to the old way of doing things.

To answer your second question, I do have two beginner Windows Vista courses available. You can find them at /Windows along with my Word classes at /Word

Unfortunately, no, I don't cover this topic in my Word classes - although it is on the list!

Please let me know if you have any other questions, or need anything else.


Q:A problem I have, which you may wish to address in a lesson sometime is this, my email looks bad. I can write an attractive letter, with photos and graphics, and then Yahoo messes it up. When I examine and try to use Word>File>Send to>... I get nowhere. I cannot seem to send an embedded photo. I believe this problem could be related to large high quality digital images. But I cannot find a way to downsize and make the process more efficient. Furthermore, Microsoft offers no help with email problems (surprised?). Thanks, Jeff

A:Jeff, I'm assuming you're using Word 2000-2003. The problem could be a couple of things... First of all, if you're using Yahoo, their software might be mucking things up for you. Have you tried just using Microsoft Outlook and a GMail account? Another thing to look at would be the size of your images. Sure, REALLY large image files might corrupt your email. I wouldn't send any images larger than 1 MB through email... and I'd keep my total email size under 3 MB. Email just wasn't designed for transmitting LARGE files. It's inefficient. Perhaps if you can send me over what you're trying to email, I'll take a look at it.
