    Ok, I will admit it from the start - I'm lost when it comes to computers & all that computer stuff, I just do the VERY basic stuff!:confused: I have Microsoft Office Word on my computer - I have tried to make stuff in Word & email it to my yahoo email to send to people, but it never sends from Outlook:( My question is can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Any insight would be appreciated!

    Are you creating a Word document and trying to attach it to the email - or are you trying to put images and content from your Word doc directly in your email?

    I'm trying to put images & content & then email. I would have absolutely no idea how to make an attachment, that's WAY over my head LOL!:blushing:

    When you do that from Word, it goes into your drafts in Outlook, and you need to actually hit Send. It doesn't do it automatically for you. (I used to send my customer email using Word to do a mail merge so that each customer got their own copy of the message. It would put all 300+ messages into the outbox, and I would send them 10 at a time.)

    If you have Outlook and Word both installed on your computer, you should have a little email button in your toolbar up where the print and save and open icons are. You can click on that, and it'll give you the space to put the email address, and you can send it directly from there.

    One thing to know though: Word is a word processing program, and often times the formatting doesn't translate well when it crosses over into HTML (such as your yahoo email in the browser). If you make it very simple (a few lines of text, a picture on its own line, lather, rinse, repeat), it'll probably come through fine. But if you start putting in text boxes and such, it may come across jumbled.

    Ok, I tried again just to see what the message says -

    Outlook Send/Recieve Progress
    Task yahoo mail - reporting error (0x80070057) Could not complete the operation One or more parameter values are not valid

    Does this help to figure out the problem? Could I make something an attachment & then email, to make it easier?:confused::confused::confused:

    If you are trying to use your Yahoo e-mail account to send out of Outlook, Yahoo e-mail accounts will not work with Outlook. You will need to use an e-mail account that is with your ISP with Outlook.
