Thanks for the clarification. :D

Well with two versions of Microsoft Word documents, is better that a user knows
which format is being attached to an email before clicking it.

So yes, there likely should be a discussion on whether we should be sticking
with the old format or not.

Nice catch Andy. :D

No he's saying the function sends out a doc file, so renaming the menu item to
say docx wouldnt fix the issue. :D

I think you should file a bug for that. :D
