Ever need to get that important Word document to your boss in a hurry? Here's how you can do it without even opening Outlook.

1. On the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Mail Recipient (as Attachment).

2. Fill in the Receipts, Subject, and message boxes and click Send.

Or if you have Word 2000:

1. On the Standard toolbar, click E-mail.

2. In the To and Cc boxes, enter the recipient names separated by semicolons.

3. By default, the name of the document appears in the Subject box. If you want, you can type your own subject name.

4. Click Send a Copy.

Using this tip is a lot easier than going into Outlook, creating a new message, and browsing for the attachment on your hard drive.

Editor's Note: This tip also works in Excel and PowerPoint.
