You might want to save your resume in rich text format (a .rtf file). This format can be opened by Microsoft's WordPad which comes with Windows and is also readable by Mac users. Or you can just save it as plain text (a .txt file) which wouldn't give anyone any trouble. Also make sure you're properly attaching the file when you create the email. I've gotten emails where somehow a shortcut to a file was attached and I couldn't open it.

There is a possibility that they don't have the same kind of program that you do. If you have Word 2007, and you're saving it in the xdoc format then they won't be able to open it using any other version of Word. I'd suggest saving it in RTF format if at all possible to maintain the highest overall level of compatibility.

Do you not look into possible spoof emails?


Never open any email you are unsure about. Generally, you can forward a copy to abuse@your-isp.com, .net or whatever it is. If it's gmail, many others too, you can add it to a spam filter or mark it as junk or blacklist it or even create your own filter to delete them or send them to trash or junk. In some email clients, you can view the entire header section, copy that info and paste into your email when you forward it. If it says it is from a well known company, chase.com for example, then send it to abuse@chase.com, use this format for any company that is being spoofed. Normally they will send you a thank you reply.

I am trying to send a resume through e-mail. The person on the other end can not open my e-mail. They said to copy and paste, how do I do that?


what format is your resume in? Microsoft Word? Just open your resume, hold CTRL and press A (this selects everything), then hold CTRL and press C (this copies the text), start a new email to the person you're sending it to and in the body of the email, hold CTRL and press V (this pastes the copied text).

Hi i own one of your printers and i have a problem, i cant scan some copies of my resume to my email box and send it to a company, i just cant scan these copies to my email,which after i have to send...


When you scan a doc to email, it will open either outlook express/Windows live mail or outlook and use that to send your email. If you have not configured either of these programs on your pc then it cannot send anything. the way around this is to scan the docs into your say My Documents/Documents folder and then attach them to your email as attchments.

Forward some pages of a letter or document by email


You send them as attachments to your email. Just pick "attachments" and you will find a dialog box where you can pick the documents you want to send. You can send 5 or 6 at a time, just keep picking the documents. Hope this helps.

When an emailing an attachment for an example a resume. They other user can not open the attachment i had sent. How can I get this opened?


The possible causes are two:

1. You are sending out a format which the recipient doesn't support (e.g. OpenOffice). To solve this, install utilities such as PDFPrinter, or export the document as PDF. This is a format which almost anyone can read, even if they can't edit it. Otherwise go for Microsoft Office or, if you use OpenOffice, set it to save as "Microsoft Word Document".

2. The recipient has some kind of security in his/her computer which disables opening of all kinds of attachments, possibly excepting only some "deemed safe" ones. There's not much you can do here. Sending documents in Microsoft Office formats sometimes improves chances they'll be deemed secure.
