Default Posting word file as ectension by Tbird

My default mail client is Mozilla Thunderbird.
If I attempt to send a file from Word (2007) as attachment T'bird just
opens with no new email with attachment window. It works fine with Wordpad
and Publisher. Is there a known problem with Word/Thunderbird?

I have tried T'bird in Safe Mode to exclude extension problems.
It works OK with Outlook and Seamonkey, but then they are not my mail
clients.

What do you see in the Registry under
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClientsMail?

For Thunderbird to be used, you should see

(Default) REG_SZ Mozilla Thunderbird

That is how is.
I have done a registry check and it seems fine.
I can email from MSPublisher and Wordpad with no problem which is why I
have come to the Word ng having had no success in the Thunderbird ng (
