2.1 Create messages
A convenient way to distribute a file (such as a Microsoft Word document, Excel
workbook, PowerPoint presentation, or picture) is by attaching the file to an email message.
Message recipients can preview or open the file from the Reading Pane, open it from the
message window, forward it to other people, or save it to their computers.
You can also attach Outlook items, such as other messages, calendar items, contact
records, notes, and tasks, to outgoing messages. Recipients can save attached items in
their own Outlook installations.
