    Please describe the problem in much more detail. Tell us what "cannot
    be opened" means. Exactly how is the recipient trying? What happens
    when he tries? If he gets an error message, please quote it verbatim.

    Please read carefully.  The original poster clearly stated she created a document in WORDPAD, not Word.

    Now the tips at the link you provided might very well apply to WORDPAD as well, but enouraging her to post "appropriately" is way off the mark, WORDPAD is included in Windows OS, and has, in this context, absolutely nothing to do with OFFICE.  Is she were to follow your advice, those at the OFFICE forum would encourage her to "post appropriately" by posting in a Windows forum since WorPad is part of the OS!

    Its really great that folks chip in here to help other users, but "help" is only possible if you take the time to read what was posted...

    To the original poster:

    Please follow along with Ken Blake's post, and describe in detail what happens on "the other end".  If they are using a PC, what version OS?  If a Windows 7 machine (at their end) then it shouldn't be having any problems other than those introduced my intermediate mail servers.  If they are using an apple machine, ask them what format would work best to support their needs.  Plain text?  Instead of sending as an attachment open the file and paste the text into the body of the email?
