    Sending Documents To Outlook (Word 97 SR-2)

    After editing a document created previously with Word the File | Send To | Mail Recipient was used to send the document to Outlook. The document has tracked changes turned on and is correctly showing the three minor text changes made to the document. It also has 4 embedded graphics, none of which were modified. When clicking on the attachment in Outlook 98 (8.5.5104.6), Word opens the document and all 4 graphics have moved slightly which Word is now flagging as tracked changes. Outlook is using MS Outlook Rich Text as the sending message format. Out of six client PCs in the department, three send the file OK and three exhibit the behavior described previously. Supposedly the machines were built identically with a corporate image. I have reviewed Word and Outlook settings between the six machines and haven't found any obvious differences. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Just a grasping at straws question: do the PCs all have the same default printer?

    I have more information to my original post. When the attachment is opened the wrapping sytle is not set for the graphics. (Right click on the graphic, select Format Picture and select the wrapping tab.) It was originally set to none when the document was sent, yet arrives with no selection. If none is selected, the track changes highlighting goes away. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    Yes they are all the same default printers. See my new post for more info.
