@Mike, @Andrea

I wondered about that too.  I could find no web API that would allow sending of messages via, let alone formatting one with a document attachment.

There is support for IMAP with Google Mail, though.  Any desktop Email client that can be
registered as the default email agent with Gmail via IMAP as its default account might work.
 The user may also find this an useful alternative to using Gmail via the browser (which still
works, of course).

I just checked Windows Live Mail, a free e-mail client for Windows, and it will (1) set up
as the "default" e-mail client and (2) it will operate with a gmail account.  I don't particularly
like this client, but it may be the easiest way to solve the user's immediate problem when
no other client is being used.  

On Ubuntu, Evolution will set up to operate with a Google email account very easily.  I just
confirmed that with the Zorin distribution I use for testing.

Thanks for that. I does seem a rather blinkered outlook not to design a
global Open Source program to accept Google email.  What on Earth is the
thinking behind THAT???
