    win 10 word 2010 email as attachment

    I cannot send a word doc when I click on Save and send.
    I have a MS account (Outlook.com)=pr.... @Live.com, a Gmail and a Comcast account.
    I selected M.S. "Mail" as my default client as none of the others appear under default.
    I used to use WLM but they are phasing Essentials out.

    Do you know how to fix this?

    I run into that problem with a few of my clients and the only solution for them was to get Microsoft Outlook so as to properly interface with Word and Excel. It's mostly the difference between using Webmail/Online E-Mail versus an installed E-Mail Client/Program. If a client doesn't want to buy Outlook or upgrade their version of Office to one that includes Outlook I advise to Save the document in the Documents/My Documents Folder, open their Browser to their Webmail page, create the message then Attach the file they created and Send.

    If I got an email client like Thunderbird etc would that work? One you downloaded to the PC. I used to have WLM.
    I thought MS's MAIL as default would do it b/c it seems to be installed, not web based.

    I have a MS account p..... @Live.com but I guess that is web based.

    Is what I need a non web based email client?
