    Wendy,

    You could either copy and paste it to the email or you could go the "file" on the top left of the screen (when your word document is open) it will say "send" as an attachment or you could send it as an open document.

    click on the way you want to do it and it will automaticly open a new email.

    As for pictures i'm a klutz :)
    Good luck

    if your resume is in Word Document format you can insert your photo there and then attach the whole document to your e-mail.

    How to insert a photo to a Word document

    Go to the Insert meny and pick, Picture from file :)

    Then you attach the document to your email. This is what I suggest and not to copy and paste your text.

    I figured it out copying each onto a disk. Then I chose attachments when i was using e-mail.

    BUT then I re-read my sent e-mail and it appears that along with the page I copied, it gave the whole word program. Like they now could open other files I had. NOT GOOD! Although it was all pastry stuff...photos and such, so I had nothing embarassing on it. But I certainly did something wrong?

    Why didn't it JUST copy the page that I had up on the screen when I hit 'send to' ?

    Thanks

    Wendy,

    You did nothing wrong at all!
    When you open the attachment it certainly will open the word program. And that's how your recipient will print your resume-from the word program.
    Just wait for the good news in your inbox¡I
    Don't worry be happy!

    Wendy,
    If in the future you get the time,try using
    an easy webpage creator and send your
    resume as an HTML doc. Once you get on to it you'll see that it's a lot less hassle and changes are easier.I wonder if it wouldn't pay to keep a copy online someplace that has free webhosting.

    btw you are NOT a dork.
