OOo provides several ways to quickly and easily send documents as an e-mail attachment in one of three formats: OpenDocument (OOo’s default format), Microsoft Office formats, or PDF.
To send the current document in OpenDocument format:
- Choose File > Send > Document as E-mail. OpenOffice.org opens the e-mail program specified in Tools > Options > Internet > E-mail. The document is attached.
- In your e-mail program, enter the recipient, subject and any text you want to add, then send the e-mail.
File > Send > E-mail as OpenDocument Text (or Spreadsheet or Presentation) has the same effect.
If you choose E-mail as Microsoft [Word, Excel, or Powerpoint], OOo first creates a file in one of those formats and then opens your e-mail program with the file attached.
Similarly, if you choose E-mail as PDF, OOo first creates a PDF using your default PDF settings (as when using the Export Directly as PDF toolbar button) and then opens your email program with the .PDF file attached.
