I wrote a message using MS Word. Clicked "File" at page top, scrolled down to "Mial Recipient". A box came up labled Microsoft Word. In the box is, "Word could not load the email envelope. This could be caused by a network conenction problem or a problem with your Office installation.

Instead of clicking "Mail Recipient". I clicked "Mail Recipient (as Attachment). This goes to the email page with the message I wrote, but there is no "send" button anywhere. Under the menu bar at the top, is a yellow bar with, "The message has not been sent" in it.

Where can I find the "send" button?

"Where can I find the "send" button?"

There is no "send" button in Microsoft Word.

It is much easier and simpler to use the correct application to compose and send email messages, so use Microsoft Outlook instead of Microsoft Word.

Or save your Word document as a file, then open Outlook >> New Message, and "insert" your Word document as an attachment.

If that doesn't work either, check that you have a working internet connection or call your ISP to see if they are having any problems with their email service.

Also check that your email account settings are correct in Outlook.

Using Microsoft Word to compose and send emails is pointless if you've got email software (eg Outlook) installed.

Alternatively you could copy the text of your Word document then paste it into a new email in Outlook.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Word offers sharing a document by sending it as html or as an attachment.

This requires you have a default email account set up on the computer; typically using M$ Office/Outlook, or any other mail app you have installed and set as default to use.

Write your message in word, save the file as a .doc or .docx. Open your email program, attach the word doc to an email, then send.

Jay, instead of posting a worthless comment such as send the file as an attachment, how about offering real help such as step by step instructions on how do that task.

Obviously that's what the OP was asking for in the first place
