When you e-mail a Word document directly from Microsoft Word, it is e-mailed as an attached document. An attached document is a separate file that prompts you to open or save the file to view its contents. With the increase of viruses, you may be asked to include a Word document in the body of your e-mail. Doing so allows readers to view the contents of your document without Microsoft Word.
