Looks like this might be an Ubuntu slip-up - if I re-install Evolution
and make it the default email app, and click on "mail" icon in an OO
doc, then it opens up Evolution Composer window with the file as an
attachment (albeit with a very strange name of ods1.ods.......)
the reason I don't want to use Evolution as my email app is that there
appears not to be a filter option to exclude any sender who is not in my
address book.....
