Hello, When I try to send a word document as email I receive the following message. "Word could not load the e-mail envelope. This could be caused by a network connection problem or a problem with your office installation"

This only occurs when the document is sent as the body of the email, When sending as an attachment it works as it should do. The O/S is XP, Office 2K with oulook 2002.

Hope someone can advise a fix for this.

Many thanks

Jon

I have tried both fixes listed above and it did not revolve my issue.  However I am using Office 2000 with Outlook 2003.  Any further suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

I did not find any.... I had upgraded to 2003 which seem to have resolved the issue.  I never found a solution prior to the upgrade.
