    On my new computer I now have Office 2003 and Lotus Notes 6.5, when I use the File menu, Send To, Mail Recipient as Attachment, the file name is coded, instead of the full file name. This does not happen with Excel files or Adobe files. Is this as expected?

    I think Word uses the same MAPI apparatus as other applications, so I can't think of any reason for the discrepancy. When you say it is coded, is it the DOS-compatible 8.3 file name, or is it a file number from a document management system? In the latter case, perhaps there is a glitch in the DMS integration macros.

    The file name is closer to the DOS-compatible 8.3. There are a few people having this issue, but others seem to have the full file name on all attachments.
