I can right click the name of a file and send tomail recipient and I can
send an attachment that way but, I would like to be able to reply to an
email and attach a file if necessary.

Hi
When using the right click to attach photo files to email messages I am
asked to resize which is fine. The attatchment window closes but nothing is
attached and the new email doesn't appear on screen as it used to.
This applies to all file types.
There is no problem opening a new email and using the insert file function,
this works fine but it means I have to resize photo's before attatching.

Many thanks

Tony

Dear,

My question is when i use OWA to create new email, when I tried in internal
network, it is no problem when i attach any size of files (within 100MB) to
the new email. But when I tried outside the internal network, I only can
attach files with size below 2kb, when I choose the files with size over 2MB
and click the "attach" button, the page with error "...page not found..."
appear. If the file size is larger than 2kb but small than 2MB, there is pop
up a window and ask for login, then no any response and file haven't attached.

I had tried the amended the register:
Message Size Limit set to 204800 (Demical) and

UseRegionalCharset set to 0 or 1 or 2

I still cannot attach files outside internal network, may anyone please give
me suggestion on it?

Thanks

I am trying to attach a file to an email in Outlook. I navigate to Insert
File and click the drop-down arrow. I am able to choose a folder but when I
try to click on a subfolder, Outlook crashes. It either shuts down
immediately or will sometimes get hung up. Does anyone have any experience
with this problem? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Jenn

When I attempt to attach a file to a new email I created, it gives me a
runtime error and closes outlook, sends a report to Microsoft, then reopens
Outlook. I can receive and view emails with attachments. This just started
in the last couple of weeks. I haven't had this problem before. I've not
changed anything to my knowledge.

First, when we click the new message button, the new mail message will
actually show up BEHIND the main Outlook window. The ONLY way to get to it
is to minimize the main window. Then, to make matters worse, if you attach a
file to that new message, instead of the attachment going into the new
message, it appears in whatever email is highlighted in your inbox, which is
not even an outgoing message at that point. Very confusing. Behavior
started about a week ago out of the blue.

When I try to attach a file to an email message, either new or a reply,
Outlook hangs after I've selected the file(s) without attaching. However,
when I right-click a file and select "Send to Email Recipient" it works. Does
anyone know how to fix this? It just started recently; I suspect a Microsoft
update screwed things up.

I'm using Outlook 2007 with Windows XP Pro. Other than regular Microsoft
updates I haven't changed/added/removed any programs from my computer since
before this problem started a few weeks ago.

Hello,

 

My question is the following:

 

1. With Excel running, several files opened:

When attaching an XLS file to email message in Outlook 2007, using (Message)-> Attach File->then select the file in explorer windows->Insert, if Excel is running with some file(s) it switches to it, and if there are more than 3 or 4 files opened in Excel, it switches to it and then closes it after 1/2 seconds, killing all the work.

After this, when trying to repeat the same operation (Excel running), all goes well. Excel does not crash nor Outlook switches to it. It simply attaches the file as normal.

 

2. Excel not running

However, if Excel is not running, all behaves well. Files are attached normally.

 

Being Excel and Outlook, two applications of fundamental importance and always running, it creates a great complication having to save everithing and close Excel every time that is necessary to send an email with XLSX attach.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thank you

I cant attach files to the attachment window in OUTGOING emails only to the
body of the message.
The attachment window does not even show.
Is this a fault in the program or simple user error.
Drop down menus do not help.
All attachmnets go to body of message.

I can send other emails just find. The problem email has a pasted jpeg
graphic from Powerpoint. Both HTML and RTF formats give the same error:
Cannot attach file. Could not find the file "filname".

Thanks.

MSFT support - FYI this is a completly worthless error message and using
Live Search at M.com and searching with the error text doesn't return any KBs
that solve this problem.

I just in the past week have been having trouble with my Outlook 2007.  I have all of a sudden not been able to attach ANYTHING to my emails.  I click on the paperclip icon and it does nothing.  It is NOT greyed out and does depress when I click on it.  Can anyone help?


The file insert function used to attach documents to emails responds very slowly when I am trying to access a folder (in My Documents) that is different from the last folder (in My Documents) that I accessed.  How do I fix this?

Hi

I receive many letters with attached files. I need to copy the attached files to defferent location (different folder) and I do this manually. I think maybe it's possible to do this job automatically? I checked rules and alerts, but I didn't find there posibility to manipulate by attached file. maybe it is possible to do by VBA? if yes, how ?

hope on your help.

Does anyone know if or when the problem with attaching sounds to emails in
Microsoft Office Outlook has been or will be fixed?

I am running Outlook 2007 on a thinkpad X41, XP SP2, and I cannot attach
files. No files show in the window when I get into attach file, and the file
name field is blank. This behavior is new, started a little while ago, a few
times I could fix it by running a repair on Outlook. Am I running into a
deep security setting?

I am the administrator for the machine and am logged in with administrator
priviledges.

Hi Since being changed from Hotmail to Outlook I have been unable to attach anything to emails as there is no toolbar or symbols. Does anyone know why and how I can fix it? I have tried a few things from suggestions on the web but with no success. I have Windows 7 and explorer. Thanks

Hello The

For some reason, if I get an email w/attachments in my Outlook 2003, I can
open it fine but if I send a new email with attachments, people won't get
them, If I receive an email w/attachments and I forward it , they will
receive it just fine, maybe I changed some settings without realizing, I
have gone to "Tools" and "Options" but I haven't been able to solve this
problem, where do I go to reverse/correct it or to default all settings? I
am going crazy, my clients haven't received any files I attached in the last
two days.

Thanks

Hello, is there any possibility to place a hypelink into the body (text) of email message which would enable opening attached files without the necessity to double-click on the attached file itself?

We sometimes send number of attachments and it would help if the receiver could just look into a list in the email message and open relevant file by clicking on the link in such list instead of searching the file itself in the attachments box.

Many thanks.

Sgt: But now the message text is messed up, and the sender's logo/signature
is missing. Can't I have my cake and eat it too?
