    Hey everyone. I have always been a word user, even on my mac. I recently began using pages and really like the interface and all, but a VERY odd problem has arisen.

    I save my documents, and then try to send them in an email. They don't attach! It's like email programs don't recognize the .pages extension!! Anyone heard of this? I really need to get some documents over to my professor, but they won't send.

    To make sure it was .pages extension that was not working and not my email (i use gmail and novell) I attached a .doc file, and it attached and sent fine. It's like the .pages extension is not able to be attached to my emails. Anyone?!?!!?

    I could use some immediate help, the hold time at Apple is over 20 min right now.

    It's because .Pages files are actually folders in disguise (like a lot of files in OS X). Archive it into a ZIP and send that.
