Hello Bvmarta,

I will have access to a Notes version 5 client on Monday to provide a
complete answer for that version. However, please confirm that you
don't want to attach a document (which can be any type) and want to
have the document appear in line.

This is in the Notes Help:
"You can embed data from another application into a rich-text field in
a Notes document. An embedded OLE object is a copy of data, so changes
made to the original file are not reflected in Notes. In order to
create an embedded object, both the original application and your
operating system must support OLE technology.

Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) is a technology that lets you share
data between applications and is supported for Windows and Macintosh.
OLE lets you link or embed data from other applications, such as a
1-2-3 chart, Word Pro document, or Freelance Graphics presentation, in
a Notes document.
You can embed or link part of a file or a whole file. You can also
embed a new object in a Notes document and use the object's
application to enter data in Notes. For example, if you have 1-2-3,
you could create a blank 1-2-3 worksheet object and enter 1-2-3
worksheet data in a Notes document.
To use OLE, you need the Microsoft® OLE Extensions, which are
installed as part of the Notes installation."
Taken from the Notes Help Doxument

Most Windows applications (MSOffice, Photoshop, Lotus, ...) support
OLE, so you have to look into the application from which you want to
embed. If you can't find this yourself, I'll be happy to find it for
you, just tell me which sort of document you want to embed.

You can attach any document to an outgoing mail message (be it sent
from Notes or not). The only criteria is that the receiver has to have
the application that can open the document (for example, the receiver
should have MS Word in order to open a .doc attachment).
