Avoids macros viruses, probably. Also, sending it in a different format
shows you know how to do a SAVE AS, and also clean up the crud that Word
sticks into other formats (sopecifically, into HTML format).

And hey - it might be corporate policy, to not accept any files in that
format. Some places get draconian that way, you know. Hell, some place
reject email if the body of the email contains "forbidden words". I had an
email rejected once because I mentioned the "ILOVEYOU" virus - and
"ILOVEYOU" was a phrase on the taboo list for this company. I had to resend,
using "I L*VE Y*U" in the body of the email, to get around it.

Oh, and it's possible to own/run just Outlook without the rest of Office.
Not bloody likely, but possible.

Anyway .. back to normal Friday ramblings ...
