I'm having a conversion problem sending mail with Open Office
attachments to computers with Microsoft Word. I've tried the help
site but it doesn't help. (too many help0s there) There must be a
very easy solution to this that I'm missing.
I'm mainly concerned with Open Office word processor.

Edit: I'm using a computer with Mepis 6.5 Operating System.

Convert the OO.o file to either a .pdf or a .doc file, since most people either have Acrobat Reader or MS Office on their system. Simply open the OO.o document and use the File/ "save as" function to replicate the text as either file type to your hard drive, and then send that.
OO.o can read (open) Word files, but currently Word cannot convert (read) OO.o file types.
Hope this helps,
John

Thanks John...changing to a .doc file did the
trick.
