What are you trying to do in Word? Do you get an error regarding the default mail client. What is your default currently? In IE and your other browsers is Thunderbird set as the default? If not you will want to do that.

Also in Windows. What version of Windows are you running? If Vista or 7 try this. Click start and in the search window type default programs or open control panel to get there. In the default programs menu choose set your default programs. Find Thunderbird and select it. Choose set set this program as default. Apply the change and reboot.

Did you follow my directions? If so did it solve the problem? Do you get an error in Word? What OS?

Don't try to send the email from Word.

Compose your Word document. Save it somewhere on your hard drive. Then compose your email in Thunderbird and add the Word document as an attachment.

I believe Word will only directly send emails through other Microsoft software.
