    Hello, I'm trying to copy and paste my resume, which was created in Microsoft Word, into an email to sent to prospective employers. However, when I copy and paste the document it is displayed with the words and rows misplaced. And when I correct it and send it, it misplaces the words again. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You should be attaching the file to the email, not copying and pasting it into the body of the email.

    Welcome to the forum. Kiwi is right. But, to address why you were having issues with copying in pasting..... You are probably copying the data into a plain text or rich formatted email. Try looking at the format of the email and change it to HTML. I do not recommend this though since some companies block HTML formatted messages or convert them into plain text, thus you will lose your formatting when they receive anyhow.
