Insert-File will add the attachment for all emails.
If you want to add an attachment in code you would use

.attachments.add("C:\TEST.DOC")

Hi mungwap

This appears to be a good walkthrough: http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/MailMerge/MergeWithAttachments.htm

Or you may want to look here http://www.slipstick.com/addins/mail.htm#massmail for some third party tools.

I said earlier that i am working in Outlook 2003...i am actually working in Word 2003.
If i say Insert-File it puts the document or picture into Word document that i am working in...what i actually want it to do is when i send the email it send that doc or picture as an attachment, i dont want it in the document i working in....i hope that makes sense!

Where would i add that code?
