emailing word 2007 documents

  dobbin 08:56 13 Jan 2009

when I email word 2007 documents [not attachments] sometimes word chooses 'windows mail' [my default email programme] and sometimes 'Outlook' which I never normally use. How can I get word to use my default email programme only? At the moment the documents are stored in two email outboxes which makes it difficult to keep track of them.

Also be aware, if the recipient doesn't have Word 2007, the document may not display correctly. You should save as 97 - 2003 to be sure.

Graham, Thanks for the link, but that's telling me how to make Outlook the default email programme which is just what I do not want. I want to stop it using Outlook.
Thanks also about the tip about saving as a word 2003; in fact that's why I try to send as an email rather than an attachment whenever possible.

When you send Emails or Documents to someone who does not have Office 2007, point them to this link, so they can download the patch from Microsoft to read 2007 (docx) files.

If you use Method 1, can you not set Windows Mail as default?

Graham, I have already set windows mail as default but it still randomly chooses Outlook. I think the only way may be to uninstal Outlook
