Spaces between words disappearing in emailed word 2007 documents

Hi Experts,

One particular machine in my office has a problem:

Scenario:
- Word document created (nothing unusual, no macros, no odd formatting) containing a block of text
- The words are correctly spaced, and the document makes sense and is coherent.
- This file is saved and emailed to someone else.
- When the recipient opens the word document, seemingly random spaces in the document have been removed in between words. So for example "two words" will have become "twowords"

The computer in question runs office 2007. The above is experienced by recipients running 2003, 2007 and 2010, so it doesn't seem dependent on the version of the recipient.

Any help appreciated

Try using a different font and then see if the results are the same. You could have a corrupt font on that system. Also, make sure you have installed the SP2 (service pack 2) update for Office 2007. It fixes all kinds of problems.
