What email system are you using? Normally you would need to attach it by clicking on the the paper clip symbol. HTH

If you are in new message, on the right hand side next to the little icon (a ladys head and shoulders with a red tick???) that says check there should be two little arrows, click on this and the paper clip icon with attach should apppear and then you can choose the PDF file from there. HTH.

Awh Pips what a nightmare lol! Maybe you have a different version of Outlook Express from me, I dont use it I just opened it on my computer to have a look for you. Only other thing I can suggest is clicking on - help - contents and index - search then type attach PDF and see what it tells you. Sorry I cant be of more help.

I think what you are asking is how to create a pdf file from a document, not how to attach it.

There is a free tool that will create PDF files from almost any printable document. Go here to download it: http://www.cutepdf.com/download/CuteWriter.exe
Cutewriter requires a converter such as Ghostscript that you can download here: http://download.cutepdf.com/download/converter.exe

Install the converter first, then the cutewriter. Then open the document you want to convert, select "file", "print" and select cutepdf as your printer. A window will pop up asking what you want name your new pdf file, type in a name and click save. Then you have a pdf file you can attach to an e-mail. :wink2:
