Can't reproduce this with Libo Version (Build ID: 7545bee9c2a0782548772a21bc84a9dcc583b89) on Windows 7.

Is it Linux specific? Can anybody confirm this?

Works fine with Server Installation of "LibO rc   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 7545bee9c2a0782548772a21bc84a9dcc583b89)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2013-01-31 11:30(?)} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate  new User Profile. For a blank new document with few words nonsense text I did menu 'File -> Send -> E-Mail as MS WORD...', and my Seamonkey 2.15 opened a new mail with attachment "noname.doc"

Related to Linux or rc version or TB?

@Jeppe Bundsgaard
Can you please test release?
Does that work for other document formats?
Comment 3 Jeppe Bundsgaard 2013-02-11 09:49:16 UTC
I did test it on 4.0.3-release - the bug-system did not accept 4.0.3 as the version (there was no 4.0.3 - but a 4.0.3-rc and that returned "not a known version, so I used 4.0.2-rc)).
Comment 4 Jeppe Bundsgaard 2013-02-11 09:50:33 UTC
Sorry - of course I meant

And no, it does not work for .odt either.
Comment 5 Michael Meeks 2013-03-02 20:00:29 UTC
Works for me with Evolution.

This 'Emne' bed.doc - is that not your document ? attached ?
Comment 6 Jeppe Bundsgaard 2013-03-04 20:26:58 UTC
Sorry! I had not defined the mail agent in LibreOffice settings. When I did that it worked. But of course it is still strange that Thunderbird opened and did not insert the attachment correctly. Maybe Libreoffice sends settings to the mail agent according to the mail agent's demands (and expected kmail on Kubuntu)?
