How do I go about installing an e mail programme so that I can transfer a document onto e mail & send it?

You can attach office documents to your email like you can attach any other type of file.

If you have an installed email program, such as Outlook or Outlook Express (or anything else) it is simple to Save a file from OpenOffice, write an email in the email program and attach the file (usually a paperclip icon on the email writing window). This is probably the simplest and quickest way to send them.

While OO can send a file direct, if the email links are properly configured, if one sends few fancy files it is not worth the effort of configuring them. Besides, they do not work with all email programs.

Try to install the Thunderbird, and setup it as default e-mail client.

You need help on files and folders. You need a computer course.
OpenOffice produces files on your computer. You are the one to organize your files so you can find them whenever you need one.
I assume, you already do send email one way or the other.
Any tool which allows you to compose and send email has some button somewhere to attach a file to the email you are writing. When you push that button you will get a file-open dialog where you select the file to attach.

Windows Live Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, Foxmail, Dreammail, any email management program would allow you to attach a file and transfer it to anyone with an email address. All you need to do is to produce that file, save it to a place on your hard disk, and then find it for attachment from your installed emailing program.

Good luck. :-)
