Yes, you can search for all items with attachments, but you cannot search
for a) specific attachments or b) attachment contents.    To perform this
type of search, simply right click on any Outlook folder, choose Advanced
Find.  In the Advance Find window, select Other Choices, then select "Only
items with: one or more attachments".

Hope that helps!!

Thank you!

outlook 2002 attachment problem
Hi, A colleague of mine has been complaining about a problem that I initially put down to user error, but am now not so sure: When she e-mails a customer, she will often attach multiple docs and then remove the ones she doesn't need, but for some reason outlook then decides to mess about with the attachments, eg it will send 2 copies of 1 attachment and miss one other. It's an inconsistent problem that I haven't seen but I now have a witness who says it definitely isn't user error! AV is up to date and computer seems clean. Any ideas? ...

attachment handling in exchange 2003 vs. 5.5
One of our systems generates emails using a java-based program. I have no control over this. It attaches a Word document to the email and sends it to our client's server. Recently they switched from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 and a problem has developed. Under 5.5, the word document was listed as an attachment. Under 2003, the word document appears to be embedded in the body of the email and there is no attachment. More about this later in this email. I believe the problem is caused by the Java program setting the Content-Type to "application/octet-stream". 1) Ca...

Same note attached to multiple orders
I have an order note that appears on about 10 different orders. I looked at SOP10100, and all of the orders have the same NOTEINDX value. I also looked at SY03900, and I see that there are several different records that all have the text of the note. What caused this, and how do I fix it? All too often, during the installation of Dynamics GP, the installer does not pay attention to setting the location of the OLE notes. When this happens, different users will pick their own spot for the recording of notes. Lets say 3 different people pick 3 different places for the storage of notes...

Adobe attaching wrong instance of invoice

Outlook 2000 can't find Word (email editor)
Just purchased a new computer with XP Home Edition OS. Also came a trial version of Office 2003. I already had Office Pro 2002 and installed it. I did not uninstall the trial version of 2003 first.

When I attempt to send an email through outlook 2000, a message pops up indicating that outlook can't find word so it will use the outlook editor. Can you help?

WMP will not find album information or connecto to Media Guide.
I'm using WMP 11 on Vista. Whenever I right click an album and "find album information" the window pops up and the globe in the top left corner spins but the window remains blank.

remove attachments from ndr
I have setup max size on outgoing message and when a user send a message that exceeds the limit, he gets an ndr but the original message is still attached (there is no way to access it though). So for example if the limit is 4MB and the user sends a 5MB message the ndr message will be 5MB as well. I searched on the Internet and found article 308303 (Option to strip attachments for messages that generate an NDR). I did follow the instructions in this article but it does not work much. Any idea?
