I am having trouble attaching word documents to email.  I have run the disk utility permissions fix suggested on this site.  When I save the document to my desktop, it saves as a word document, witht he correct icon; however, when I attach it to my email (either Outlook or Shaw), it attaches as some sort of document that requires a download with a right click from my mouse (which entails a preference change).  The problem is that my students can't open the documents; they send them in word, but when I send them back,they can't be opened in word.  Any suggestions?

    Compress the file before attaching it. Your students can expand the compressed file by double clicking.


    Select the file, then go to File menu and select Compress .... The compressed file will be created in the same location as the file itself. You can delete the compressed file without losing the original.
