My Outlook Express works fine for sending and recieving e'mails... However, it will NOT allow me to forward something on my desktop ( say a Word file) to another persons e'mail.






Thanks!

Got it,

what i meant was, when i open a word doc on my laptop, across the top there's a " Send" e'mail option.


When i attempt this, as i've successfully done many times in the past, i get an error message.

Ah, OK.

Well, there 's the issue. Word uses the functionality of local, pop-based email programs like outlook and outlook express to achieve what you're after.

It is not possible to do this with word/hotmail

The message you are getting is telling you that a smtp (simple mail transport protocal) server is not configured in outlook or outlook express--which is expected since you do not use them

Hotmail cannot be setup to achieve this--there was a time when hotmail could be integrated into outlook and outlook express by Microsoft pulled the ability. They still offer it for premium customers (paid), but I cannot vouch for whether it will work without trying it.

I do not understand how it could have worked....your saying you clicked on the send email button in word, and it opened in Internet Explorer to your hotmail account?

Well..... it opened "something" that let me e'mail that doc to someone else.

There is NO QUESTION that i dont what the heck i'm doing so what else could have been opening up from the Word program?
