Sending E- Mails from Office Applications
If you have an e-mail client (software for sending and receiving e-mail) on your computer, such as Microsoft Outlook, you can send Office documents in e-mails. You can send a Word document, an Excel worksheet, or even an entire PowerPoint presentation with an e-mail message.
The process for sending e-mail from the different Office applications is the same for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. You use the Send To command on the File menu.
You can send Word or Excel files embedded in the e-mail message or you can send them as attachments. In the case of PowerPoint and Access, the file you currently have open can only be sent with the e-mail message as an attachment.
In most cases, sending the file as an attachment makes it easier for the recipient to manipulate the file after they receive it. To send an Excel worksheet as an attachment, follow these steps:
Your e-mail is sent. You can view the sent e-mail by opening your e-mail client and then opening the Sent Items folder.
One thing to remember when you are e-mailing documents directly from Office applications is that you must be connected to the Internet or your company's network to actually send the mail. If you use a dial-up connection to access the Internet (and Internet e-mail), connect to the Internet before sending the e-mail from the Office application.
