    Send a Word doc as e-mail in Word 2002 (Word 2002)

    How do I get Word to send a doc via email?
    Using Works 2002 and Eudora Pro 5.2, Word's Send-To options are grayed out except for FAX when I want to send a document via email to a recipient. Options show up OK if I specify Outlook as email program in Windows XP PRO Internet Options, but not if I specify Eudora. Eudora says it's a MS problem. Dell won't respond unless I pay - and then won't guarantee success. MS Word group doesn't have an answer. Is this problem peculiar to Works? I had no problem with Office 2000 Small Business and Win 98. Thanks. Chuck.

    Does it work if you specify Outlook or Outlook Express as the default e-mail program? I suppose that, even if it did, this would create other problems...

    You might have to do this the old fashioned way and create the message in Eudora, then attach the file.

    In Word, I used to be able to import a picture, other document or paste from the clipboard into a Word Doc, or compose a file without naming or saving it. I could then click on File>Send To> Mail Recipient and it would open Eudora if not already opened, attach the file and be ready for me to insert an addressee and send. I could do that even if the document in Word was not saved or named -- the attachment would then be shown as something like "Word document 101". I can't do that now because the selection is grayed out and I wondered why -- it isn't grayed out if I show Outlook as my email program in Internet Options. I can open Eudora, select a Word file and send it as an attachment, but the other way was easier and more efficient. I wondered why Word no longer will work with Eudora but will with Outlook. If there is a way to make Word or Windows XP Pro show the Mail Recipient in the drop-down box when I am using Eudora Pro 5.2, I'd sure like to know how.
    Thanks for the reply.

    It may be that Eudora Pro 5.2 will not work with XP.
    Have you downloaded any up dates for Eudora?

    Is this a Word document or one of the other programs within Works?

    Lost my post... try again...

    This may be a difference between the Office suite and the Works suite.

    Try this "hack" to the wini.ini file suggested for making Office work with Outlook Express. It might supply the missing information Word needs to access Eudora. If the MAPI files do not exist on your system, then that's a trickier problem...

    The 5.2 version is updated for Win XP. It's the latest version.
