E-mailing Routes

Can anyone here tell me how to e-mail a Microsoft Streets & Trips route. After I attach the file (.est) and try to send the message my Vista e-mail says "some of the files cannot be found and cannot be sent". What am I doing wrong or not doing right?

Re: E-mailing Routes

Some email systems do not like certain file names. You can try to rename it with a "zip" extension, and have the person on the other end change it back to est.

Re: E-mailing Routes

Mike & Dave,
Thanks for the input on zipping. I found that the problem was having Streets & Trips running while I was trying to email. I closed Steets & Trips (per Windows trouble shooting) and Vista sent the files without error. Now to share some great roads.
