E-mailing a Presentation

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


The major difference between Office 98 and Office 2000 is the integration with the Internet.  Office 2000 has many more Internet-ready features than Office 98 had.  

Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 lets you quickly and easily E-mail a presentation (by adding an attachment) to a recipient who has PowerPoint.  This is especially helpful when you need to send copies of your presentation to people who may need it for business purposes.

E-mailing a Presentation

1.  Save your presentation.  

Tip: It is important to save your presentation before even attempting to send it to prevent any data loss if PowerPoint or Outlook crashes.

2.  Click the File menu, point to Send To, and click "Mail Recipient (As Attachment)".

IMPORTANT: Be sure you click the option that says: "Mail Recipient (As Attachment)", not just "Mail Recipient".

3.  Type the message as you normally would, being sure to fill in the From, To, and Subject fields.  

4.  It is also recommended to include a description or friendly message in the "Body" of the message.  If you don't the person receiving the message (with the attachment) may think the message is unsafe.

5.  Click the Send button.

Tip: If you receive a message from Outlook telling you that the attachment may be unsafe, just click OK.  The presentation you are sending is normally safe.
