I have window vista, windows mail and the 2007 office home and student
2007 version of word which does not have outlook. when i create a
word 2007 document the option of sending it as an attachment by email
is gray - so not an option. Does this not work with windows mail?
does this mean I need outlook?

also when i am in windows mail and hit the paperclip to attach the
same 2007 word document and send it to myself, i can not open it in my
windows mail as it states that the DOCX file does not have a program
associated with it and that i must create an association in the
control panel.

thank you for your help.

Word needs certain MAPI handlers to be present in order for it
to be able to hand off a document to the default email program.
Reinsert your Office CD, select "install additional components/
custom install". There should be an option to install Outlook
MAPI handlers.

Not sure why your WM is not recognizing DOCX. Have you gone into
Default Programs and verified that DOCX is assigned to Word?

Start | Default Programs
Make sure Windows Mail has all its defaults.
