    Word checkboxes and Outlook (Word 2003)

    We have a protected Word document with some text form fields; it also has a couple checkboxes...everything works fine in Word. When we try to email it to someone, however, Outlook "loses" the checkboxes; other field values are fine. The checkboxes are just for indicating Yes or No . Word is the email editor in Outlook. Is there a way to get Outlook to recognize the fields or change the Word document so that Outlook keeps the values?

    Check boxes and dropdown lists from the Forms toolbar vanish without a trail if you use them in the body of an e-mail. If you want to send out a form, do it from within Word and use the File | Send to | Mail recipient (as attachment) menu option. If the Word document is sent as an attachment, the check boxes and dropdown lists should remain intact.
