I previously can send open word document directly from outlook (without attaching the document).  I am not sure what happend but I now get the error :  Word couldn't send mail because of MAPI failure:  "Unspecified error"

This error can occur if you attempt to send a Word document as an e-mail attachment in Word and the MAPI session was closed and Word is no longer able to connect to that MAPI session. It can also occur if there is a problem with the fax configuration.
To correct a MAPI related error: restart the MAPI e-mail program (for example,Outlook) or save and close the document, and then restart Word after restarting your MAPI e-mail application. Word will establish a new MAPI session, allowing the document to be sent.
To correct a problem with the fax configuration, review the configuration settings for your fax software and make the appropriate changes.


Please help.

Thank you.
