Which desktop email client do you use? Outlook, Thunderbird, or other? Or do you simply use a browser for your email?

General instructions for setting up your desktop email client can be found at:

If using a browser for email you'd need to manually attach a Word document to an outgoing email.

If you are using an email client, like Windows Mail or Thunderbird, it's simple...just attach the Word file to your email and address it to the person you are sending it to and add any other greetings or instructions to the body of the email and click "Send"...

Do you use an email client or do you use your browser logged into your email server?

If you're using your browser, (called web mail when you log into your email server) then click "New Message", complete the "To" , "Subject" and any personal info in the body of the email, then click the "Attach" button, select "My Computer" then navagate to the folder/file to select the "Word" document on your computer, or you can "Drag" the file to the attach field, then send the message..

Life is much easier if you use an email client..

I HIGHLY recommend Thunderbird. Not only the best email client around but one of the best pieces of software, period.
