View Full Version : Format changes in Outlook2007 emails

01-03-2010, 08:49 PM
I need to type newsletters in Word 2007 - saving as 97-2003 doc - then copy and paste into Outlook email. These docs include text and graphics and appear as A4 pages in Word.
But when I copy/paste into Outlook they almost go to Landscape or A3 with the text going for miles and the graphics stay where they were on the original document. So am totally losing my Word formatting.
Am obviously doing something wrong???

Rather than copy and paste why not attach the file to an Email?

For those that don't have Word installed they can get a word viewer.

You could use Word's "Send to email recipient" function...

This will embedd the word document into the body of an email.

I use this on a regular basis in my job to send outage notifications to all our users.

It's very handy... I did have to fudge around with some of the formatting as we are using a mix of Office 2003 and 2007.

Thanks to the 2 answers so far but #1 I really don't want to attach (ended up doing this for the last newsletter but some of the newer users are not happy opening an attachment). #2 haven't tried the "Send to email recipient" function. Shall have a look.
Thank you both.
