Re: How Best to Email Documents?

In any case recipients have good reason to be suspicious of attachments.

Some attachments.
If I were a teacher and told my students to send homework in my email, I would expect them to use attachments.

Since Open Office can convert a document to HTML format is there any way to insert the text directly into the email rather that send it as an attachment?

I think a PDF attachment is better, and OOo creates PDFs just fine.

The problem of attachments is compounded in the case of homework. My grandson writes his papers using Open Office. The printouts are fine but occasionally he must transmit the file to school. The school uses only Mac's but can convert files from the .doc format. This means Open Office must convert from .sxw to .doc for transmission to the school where it will be converted to their Mac format.

Is there a better way to do all this?

First choice is the format the school expects:-)
If it's your choice, I recommend PDF. It is, after all, Portable Document Format.
