word docs as attachments


W

weekend

Many people no longer accept attachments in their email from unknown
correspondents, but Word 2007 will only email docs as attachments. Older
versions of word used to simply transmit the doc as the email content.

Other than marking the entire doc and copying and pasting it into the email,
what can I do to transform the doc directly into an email and NOT as an
attachment?

Graham: there seems to be some misunderstanding. The "E-mail" command is not
missing. It's working perfectly, sending docs as attachments. The problem is,
I don't want to send docs as attachments, because the recipients who don't
know me don't want to open attachments. I WANT TO SEND DOCS AS EMAIL TEXT,
the way older versions of Word used to. Is there any way I can send docs as
email text without doing a "mark, copy and paste?"

Add the 'send to mail recipient' command to the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar)
from the all commands section.
Note that the formatting of your document will almost certainly be lost when
you send the document as an e-mail message as the formatting requirements
for Word documents and html are entirely different. Web view should provide
an indication.

thanks, graham. That worked perfectly. I understand about the deformatting,
but I'd rather deal with that than have my letter unread.

This command is not on the ribbon but you can add it to your QAT.
Click Office-button -> Word Options -> Customize -> select Commands
not in the Ribbon -> locate Send to Mail Recipient and add it to your
QAT.
