I support a small office that runs three computers with Vista SP1 and Office 2007. All updates have been applied. They cannot send email from within Word 2007. Word will just hang there forever if this function is selected. Outlook 2007 is setup and functioning for E-Mail.

It's not that the option isn't there- it hangs Word.

I understand, but did you check that VBA was properly installed?

I checked that VBA was properly installed. While I was I was in Add/Remove programs I found that in Office 2007\Office shared Features, New & Open Microsoft Office Document Shortcuts was not available. Enabling this enabled the Send Email function in Word 2007, which now works most of the time especially if Outlook is already open. Does that make any sense? I did find that one of the computers when using this Word Send E-Mail function, when you actually send the E-Mail the mail window stays open and you have to close it manually. It works fine when sending E-Mail from within OutLook.

It would make sense if your Office installation is corrupted. Try repairing Office (Control Panel/Add-Remove programs)

I had tried repairing Office early in the process of troubleshooting. I will try it again on the computer with the email window issue.

So I got back to the office with the Office 2007 Send Email issue and it is working as long as one opens Outlook before using the Send Email function from Word 2007, otherwise it just hangs. Repairing Ofice did not help. And why do two of the Outlook have two "Send" buttons?
