View Full Version : send email from within Word 2002

05-12-2007, 03:23 PM
I used to be able to send my word 2002 doc or 2002 xls straight to my email client (Thunderbird) by clicking on "File", "Send". But these are now greyed out or not even on the menu in excel.
Any ideas?

Tried the built-in repair function?

ps - never heard of 2002 - perhaps you have XP or 2003?

Tried that, no change. Yes it's Word XP.

Hmm. Only thing I can think of to try is uninstall, reboot then reinstall.

Done all that and still no joy. And it all works fine on my work PC. Is it a setting somewhere in the registry?

File menu, Send To, Mail Recipient shows on mine if you expand the menu.

Also Tools, Customise, Toolbars, Check Email

I see I had to install outlook first. Now I just need to make Thunderbird my default email client.
