I have a user that gets the message "Operation Failed" when in Word 2003, attempting to "Send To" Email Recipient as Attachment.

Nothing special about the document.  It just doesn't work.

    I don't know if this will help - it's about Excel but the same problem apparently.

    Someone else also said this is a solution - although I don't quite understand it....

     "Office 2003 resource kit - remove all wizard fixed"

    You may want to download that and give it a try.... removing all wizards
