    I made a document in Pages and exported it to a PDF and saved that on my desktop. I tried to send that PDF via e-mail and the receiver never got the e-mail. My account has the e-mails in the sent folder and I haven't gotten any messages that the e-mail failed; it's been a couple of hours now.

    I also tried exporting the pages to a word document and that did not appear to work either. Am I missing a setting or preference? Why aren't my e-mails going through?

    If the recipient has a Windows based PC, you might want to do the following.

    Address a new email and click on the attachments button at the top. At the bottom of the drop down window is a little box that says "Send Windows Friendly Attachments" click that box and then select the PDF that you want to send and you should be set!
