Send to mail recipient as attachment

When I use the "send to ... mail recipient as attachment" in Word or Excel, in the body of the message I compose none
of the autocorrect functions work e.g. the first letter if not capitalized is not corrected, and spelling errors go by
without any errors detected or corrected. However, when I compose an email in Outlook all these features are working.
Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be enabled for these features to carry over into a message generated in an
Office app using the send to option mentioned above? I am using Office 2002 SP3.

Thanks,

Kevin

The options I want are checked, but when the email opens with the attached document or spreadsheet and I
start typing in the body of the email message spelling is not checked or corrected.

Make sure you have selected HTML format, no plain text format.

Some functions do not work with Send To attachment.  If you want the autocorrect to work, you need to create a new mail from Outlook and attach the file.
