    Can't Send Attachment in Word 2016 Through Thunderbird -- Help


    I cant send mail as an open attachement in word 2016 through thunderbird. When I try to, Word gives an error.

    So just to give you steps into the problem:
    1. I open up the doc.
    2. While its still open, in Word I go to File>Share>Email>Send As Attachment.
    3. TB loads in the background.
    4. I get this message in Word: "Word couldn't send mail because of mapi failure: attachment not found"

    Just to let you know, I have no problem sending this as a PDF when I choose the "Send as PDF" option in Word. How do I fix it so that I'm able to send as Word attactment through TB?




    ** PLEASE DO NOT SAY THIS IS A THUNDERBIRD ISSUE. I'VE SEEN MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE SAME ISSUE AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THUNDERBIRD. ITS PURELY A WORD ISSUE.***

    Have you tried starting Word with no add ins to see if any of them are causing issue?

    It could also be a website issue, due to the issues in recent years with word macro viruses some company mail servers are set-up to reject DOC & DOCx documents as well as things like DOTx and even XLSx. some are also set to not even send out a failure message (spammers often use the refusal message to show an address is "Live" and concentrate other methods

    It's unlikely in your case but may be worth a check

    This used to be a common known issue with 3rd party clients and older versions of Office (not sure about 2016). Some documentation I have come across points to modifying a MAPI registry entry as a fix.

    Have a look at these to see if anything helps:

    Customize the 2007 Office system to work with a non-Microsoft e-mail application
