    I'm a freelance writer and I use Apple's Pages. I like the "Send copy to" feature as it would export to any format I needed and sent it via email. It won't work with Outlook because it doesn't have a share extension. I created a folder action that watches a folder and runs an AppleScript (Thank You David Ellis!) to attach the exported file to an Outlook message, then moves the exported file to the trash.
    This way, when I want to email copy to my editor in Word docx format I just export it to a certain folder that the folder action watches. It opens up an Outlook compose window with the file attached.
    It's a bit kludgy but it works and is a bit quicker than having to export into Word format, then manually attach that file to an email.
