Since this earlier post answered some of my questions, I hope it's OK to add on to it to get additional clarification, instead of having you folks have to re-answer part of it.
In my case, we're the ones who are upgrading to Vista and Office 2007 products. I had assumed that we'd have to save attachments as earlier versions so our recipients could open them - but I wanted to confirm whether the emails themselves would be able to be opened. Since Outlook opens Word as it's editor, and Word will be 2007 on our side, will recipients with other mail systems or earlier versions have any trouble reading the emails? Is it just the actual attachments with the new file extension that are a possible problem? Would it be the same issues for jpg's and spreadsheets and such?
A couple of my recipients are residents in a senior home, using their shared computers, so getting the Combatability Pack will be difficult (they've been waiting two months for their corporate people to hook up the printer, and the computers were 'installed' by the maintenance man)
I just want to make sure I make it easy for them to read and reply to emails. One lady is 87 and just learning about computers.
Thanks for your help.
