    Hello. I'm completely new to Mac. I tried to send out a word doc through email (I'm using Apples default mail program). It tells me that I haven't created an email account with entourage.
    I don't want to save the doc somewhere and then add an attachment and....
    Is there an easy way to send a doc through Apple "mail"?

    If you're not going to first save the file, the only thing you can do is copy the document in Word and paste it in a Mail message. However, doing that may result in format changes that you don't want. It's much better to save the Word doc, then drag and drop it from Finder to the Mail icon on your Dock. That will open a new Mail message and automatically attach the Word document. This is all assuming you've first properly set up your mail account in Mail.

    Below sea level
    And you can always delete the .doc file afterwards.
