Word Sends Email

Too many times, someone using Word needs to send an email, so that person does the following:

  1. Starts Outlook.

  2. Waits for Outlook to begin.

  3. Creates a new email message in Outlook.

  4. Types the message.

  5. Sends the message from Outlook.

  6. Returns to Word and continues typing the document.

To Do: Send Email from Word

There's a better way and it's built right into Word. Although the actual process described in these six steps still occurs, the user 's job is much easier if he or she does this:

  1. graphics/new2003_icon.gif

    Selects File, New to display the New Document task pane shown in Figure 21.5.

    Figure 21.5. You can send an email from within Word.


  2. Click the E-Mail Message link. A new email message opens, complete with fields for the sender and subject just as though you'd created a new, blank email message within Outlook.

  3. Complete the email message. Clicking the To field will display your Outlook contacts just as though you'd created this email within Outlook.

  4. Click the Send button to send the message. Word sends the message to the recipient, dialing your Internet provider if needed first to establish a connection.

  5. Word then returns to the position in your document where you last left it.
