name of attachment and version of word, wordperfect

by Black Panther In reply to attachment format

what was the extension of the attachment you sent ie ????.doc or ???.wpd or something else

Did you use Word or Wordperfect to create the document??

If you used Wordperfect and the person on the other end does not use wordperfect or has different outdated versions they may not be able to read or convert it.

ie depending on versions

If you did use Wordperfect and don't have Word you will need to save it differently as a .txt extension.

Hi,

Get yourself a pdf creator and send all attachments in pdf format.

hey, count your lucky stars..

I reject anything with an attachment unless 1 of 2 conditions is met.
1) I am expecting it from that address
2) I know the person sending it

I never want to see anything but plain text for documents, if I am supposed to alter them.
html only for spreadsheet type data
if it's a resume, pdf.
if it's a brochure, pdf

if you send html formatted email, it's rejected as spam.

plain text.

the fancy features are a waste of data transfer capacity, time and money.
