    Outlook Email Formatting - Attachments (2003)

    Greetings Loungers,

    Perhaps someone can assist me with this problem. I have Office 2003 installed, and frequently email various items (Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets, etc). The easiest way to email something is to do it directly from the application using the 'Send To' function.

    Unfortunately, since my upgrade, these programs have a nasty habit of simply making the send-to pane visible. In the case of Excel, this results in the spreadsheet being appended to the body of the email message, instead of being sent as an attachment. I've done some digging around and can't seem to find a setting or preference for this. Does anyone have any insights?

    Thanks so much for any help you can provide!

    Sincerely,

    If you were to use the menu, you will find under "File, Send To", you will see "Mail Recipient (As attachment)".

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Dave,

    Do you know if there's a way to change the default handling of the standard 'Send To...' 'Mail Recipient' option?

    Are you using the "Tool bar" to get to the "Send To"?
    If so you SHOULD be able to write a macro and add it to the tool bar.

    The File | Send To submenu should have separate items File menu, "Mail Recipient" (send the document in the body of the e-mail) and "Mail Recipient (as Attachment)". If the latter is missing from the menu on your system, you can get it back by either resetting the menu bar to its factory-set state, or by adding the item back:
    - Select Tools | Customize...
    - Activate the Commands tab.
    - Select the File category in the list on the left.
    - Locate "Mail Recipient (as Attachment)" in the list on the right,
    - Drag it to the File menu.
    - Wait until the menu drops down.
    - Drag to the Send To submenu.
    - Wait until it flies out.
    - Drop the item in the fly-out menu.
    - You could also remove the "Mail Recipient" item if you don't like it.
    - Close the Customize window.
    You'll have to do this for each app separately.

    Perfect, Thanks!

    I may be WAY off, but I seem to remember options for how this was supposed to have been handled in Previous versions of office. I guess they just improved it out of the new version... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> The 'Mail Recipient' option has been duely removed.

    Thanks again, I appreciate it!
