I needed to e-mail a friend a word document that I had opened and I saw under File, a Send to -> Mail Recipient (as attachment) option but it's faded. Anyone know why?

This sounds like a M$ issue...are you asking here because this is happening in XP while running Boot Camp/Parallels?

I know on my PC this option exists and is accessible.

I'm sure you're aware that this way is only one of a few methods to email documents as attachments...

To the first poster, I'm having this problem on OS X. I know there are other ways to email this file but I'd like to utilize this feature. Anyone know why it's faded?

Is your "Mail" client up and running?

Have you tried to "Repair disk permissions"?

What is your setup?

has it worked before?

can you send other documents?

i'm guessing you actually have a document open when you're trying this, right? (silly question, but one must ask)


i don't use office on my macbook, but i do use it every day at work, so just thinking about basic troubleshooting steps.

It's never worked before and in Excel files, it's faded as well. Yes, I have the document open

I appreciate the attempts to troubleshoot my problem, Eric. Can anyone else help me?

What email client are you using?
From Word Help:

Notes
• You cannot send documents from Microsoft Office if your default e-mail program runs in the Classic environment.
• Sending documents in e-mail might not work across electronic mail gateways.
• If you're sending a document to someone who uses Microsoft Office for Windows, be sure to add a file extension to the end of the file name. You can add the extension when you save your presentation by selecting the Append file extension check box in the Save As dialog box.
You will also need to make sure that you have a default email program set for your OS. To set this, open up Mail, then go to Preferences. Under the General tab, choose your default email app from the drop down menu for "Default Email Reader".
If you have met all of those requirements, then you should have the "send to" option available from the Word File menu.

It works for me. I know this doesn't help you but I'm just indicating that it does work in OS X.
