    I cannot email a document when I am in the document.
    When I am in Word or Excel and I select-- File -- Send to -- Mail Recipient
    as Attachment--, it automatically opens up Outlook (which is NOT my default).
    And from there, I cannot send. There is no send button or option to choose
    to get the mail to go.
    Please advise.
    I finally figured out how to send the attachment while in Windows Mail - I
    had to completely close the application in order for the attachment to be
    able to be sent.
    Thank you for you time.

    If you have configured Windows Mail as your Default Mail Application, click
    on start and then click on Default Programs( You can also find this under
    Control Panel>Programs>Default Programs.). Select Windows Mail from the list
    and then click on Set This program As Default. This will enable you to send
    attachments while they are open using Windows Mail by selecting -- File --
    Send to -- Mail Recipient when you are using Word or Excel.
