How to Email PowerPoint Presentations Perfectly
You probably think emailing a PowerPoint presentation as easy as "just attach it". But sometimes, your recipient will meet a lot of questions in reading the PPT file you mailed. Can't open, no sounds or totally destroyed. What happened to this easy job? Let's clean it up today.
Why the recipient can't open the PowerPoint presentations(PPT file)
Reason 1: The PowerPoint program is not installed on recipient's computer.
Solution：Tell your recipient to install PowerPoint viewer, and provide the download links for him.
Reason 2: The different version of PowerPoint between your and recipient. PowerPoint 2007 can read PowerPoint 97-2003 files in compatibility mode, but not vice versa.
Solution: Add the official solution "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats": http://snipurl.com/3fvu7.
With this compatibility pack from Microsoft, most PowerPoint 2007 files can be viewed in compatibility mode. However, the compatibility mode has drawbacks: some elements or effects are changed or missing. The official solution is worth trying unless you choose other preferred formats for your presentations.

Why the audios, videos and other multimedia files cannot be played back while Email
Reason：Not all inserted files in PowerPoint is embedded, and most sounds and videos are saved on your local disk. Therefore if you just send the PowerPoint file, the recipient cannot open or play your multimedia contents which are just linked in the presentation.

2. Reinsert these files to PowerPoint presentation.
3. Package the entire folder into one archive file and send it to others. Do not create self-extracting (SFX) archive since most email block EXE files by default. WinZip and WinRAR are both recommended to archive your presentation files for emailing perfectly.
