OpenOffice Writer 3.x Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

OOo provides several ways to quickly and easily send a Writer document as an e-mail attachment in one of three formats: .ODT (OpenDocument Text, Writer’s default format), .DOC (Microsoft Word), or PDF.

To send the current document in .ODT format:

  1. Choose File > Send > Document as E-mail. Writer opens the e-mail program specified in Tools > Options > Internet > E-mail. The document is attached.
  2. 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 has the same effect.

If you choose E-mail as Microsoft Word, Writer first creates a .DOC file and then opens your e-mail program with the file attached. Similarly, if you choose E-mail as PDF, Writer 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.
