Office Document 2000 vs. 2002 (2002 (10.4712.4219 SP-2))
I suspect this has been covered previously, but since we can't search...
I just switched from Office 2000 to Office XP. I'm a little puzzled by how Outlook 2002 handles "Office Documents" as e-mail, compared to Outlook 2000. In Outlook 2000, I often created a new message as a Word Office Document to get Word's formatting (rather than specifying Word as my e-mail editor). Outlook would ask if I wanted to mail this document to someone or just post it in a folder. I would choose the former and Outlook would provide a tab for the header (To, CC, Subject) and a tab for the Word-formated body. Life was good. Now, in Outlook 2002 when I select an Office Document as the New Message format, Word itself appears to launch and my only option (it appears) for sending it is to use Word's "Send To" option in the File menu. Although this ought to work okay, when I view the sent message in Outlook, the message tends to be formatted somewhat differently (e.g., if a bulleted line is underlined, the bullet and space following are also underlined).
I really like the way Outlook 2000 handled this task (or maybe I'm just more familiar with it). Is there a better way (than described above) to handle the same task (and still get satisfactory results) in Outlook 2002?
