e-mail attachments

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

E-mail attachments created using Microsoft Works word processor cannot be
opened on the receiving end. I've attached it with the file open, the file
closed, as a word processor file, and as a .doc file. I've sent it using AOl
and Hotmail. Nothing works. How do I attach a resume file to an e-mail so
that the receiving party can open it and be able to read it as it was
orginally written??

    Does your recipient have Works or another compatible application
    installed?

    Have you tried zipping it & then sending the zipfile as an attachment?

    What do you mean exactly by this? Have you found out from your recipient
    what happens when they do try to open the file?
    There could be any number of reasons why they can't open the file.
