RESOLUTION

To avoid the behavior described in the "Symptoms" section, when you are prompted to save the document, choose not to.

You can return the mail message to a Word document format by using either of the two following methods:

  • On the File menu, click Save As, and save the file in Rich Text Format. Then reopen the file, and save it as a Word document. -or-


  • On the File menu, click Send To, click Mail Recipient, click File, click Close, and then click Yes.
