WD: File Send Sends Attachments Only as Word 6.0 Documents


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 7.0, 7.0a
  • Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 6.0


In Microsoft Word, the Send command on the File menu attaches the current document as a Word document in a mail message, even if the file is saved in a non-Word format. This problem occurs when you have the Mail As Attachment option selected in the General options dialog box. (To locate the Mail As Attachment option, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the General tab.)


To mail a file in a format other than Word, save the file in that format from Word, and then attach the file to a mail message from within your mail program.
