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.

"No socket error, Error Number: OX800CCCOD"

I'm not literate on the computor.... this is gonna be like pulling teeth for you, again, please bare with me.
I use Hotmail to send/recieve.

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.
