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. :-)

You can install Outlook, Thunderbird etc mail clients over your system and during composing a mail there is an option to add attachments, mostly it's logo is a paperclip, just press on it and navigate to the desired file and select that file and send the mail.

I don't know why you can't use OpenOffice's command File>Send>"Document as Mail" with Thunderbird on MS WIndows 10. I think it is one of those Windows problems with wrong registry entries. I fixed it once and I fixed it twice because our scanner could not open Thunderbird to send a scanned picture directly. Windows10 updates have a bad habit to change user settings. If you are really forced to use that shitty operating system, you have to live with things like that unless you are willing to use Microsoft products exclusively and store all your data on their servers.
In any case, you can always send any mail attachments with any mail application. All you need to know is the location and name of the file to be attached. Thunderbird accepts drag&drop operations from the file mananger ("WIndows Explorer"). Drag a file from Explorer into the upper-right corner of a window where you edit a mail to be sent.

This is the registry entry which fixed the problems with our scanner and Thunderbird:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail]
@="Mozilla Thunderbird"

Thanks for the registry fix.
I did the changes and it worked.
It was the best way of solving the issue.i know drag an drop and attachment methods but want to get to the root of the issue.
Thanks again
