Word "email as attachment" button disabled

Ok I am trying to configure Word 2002 to attach doc files as attachments only. I know I can attach manually but looking to check the settings for a novice friend - using my own PC - I find while the "email" to place the text into an email is functioning - the "email as attachment" button is disabled - I have checked in tools/options/general and "mail as attachemnt" is checked .

But still it is disabled. I can think of no security firewall settings that would prevent this as I send attachments normally with Outlook Express 6 without a problem.

Ok I have fixed it - I had to add something to the win.ini file - however there is another problem in sending which I will have to now troubleshoot . Oh well.
