My XP system w/outlook keeps changing my email Word documents to WordPad which causes me to lose the original format of the document sent. How do I stop that?
Thanks for any help from a newbie.

Word doesn't "convert" without being asked to. Open Word. Hit the File-->Open menu. At the bottom, does it say "recover text from any file"? Make sure it says "All documents". If it doesn't say "recover...", then go to Tools-->Options, Save tab. Make sure Word isn't set to save as some other file type. Make sure it says Word (your version) document. If your DOC files are opening in WordPad INSTEAD of Word, then it's a file association problem. See: http://www.officearticles.com/misc/files_dont_open_when_double-clicked_in_microsoft_office.htm
