Mail a Document Directly from Word

November 21, 2011

Did you know that you can send an email containing an attachment of the document you are working on directly from Word (or Excel, PowerPoint or Publisher)? Now you don’t have to worry about saving it and then forgetting where you put it when it is time to send it somewhere! Try this:

  1. Save your document.
  2. Click on the File tab.
  3. Select Save and Send.
  4. On the right side, you will see the options that you have. (With Publisher, you have the option of sending your document as the email itself, not just as an attachment!) Click one choice.
  5. An email message pops open with the document already attached and the title of the document as the Subject. Fill in the necessary addresses. Add a message, if you want.
  6. Hit Send and you are done.
