When you right click on a file (for example a document or photo in your My Documents or Pictures folder )
a sub menu should open,and amongst the items in the "Send To" menu there will be an item called "Mail Recipient"
If you click on Mail Recipient then your email client, MSO Outlook will open a new email and insert the file you right clicked on as an attachment..... However the recipient will be left blank so that you can choose the person you want to send it to, and also the message will be left blank so you can type in a message to them. In order to send the email with the file attached you will need to at least complete the recipients details ( email address) and click on "Send"
There are quite a few steps involved in this so its difficult to send a file to someone by mistake... I hope you find that reassuring
This is just one way that Windows lets you send a file by email ...there are other ways of doing it but this is just one way.
