Outlook Express has an option to block attachments. According to Microsoft, this feature is not enabled by default, but judging from feedback to Microsoft, it is enabled at least in some circumstances. Users are also reporting that nearly all of the attachments they receive are considered unsaf

3. Uncheck the box that says “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus.”
4. Click OK. Once you click on OK, you should be able to open your attachments without any further trouble. But before you do this, make sure your antivirus software is up to date, and set to update automatically

We are attempting to send an e-mail with a link in it, for example http://www.anywhere.com , but DO NOT want users to be able to click on that link and get to the website.

Hi We have a piece of code that sends emails with attachments (office newsletter etc.) to our staff via outlook automation. This code has been running fine for years and this problem has only recently come up.

Money 2007 Deluxe vs. OA2007 Express for Personal Finances
Yeah, I know they're not really intended for the same target "audience." But the user interface, the glitches, and the gee-golly-look-at-this behavior of Money 2007 has really worn me down. I can usually adapt to software no matter how bizarre it's behavior -- as long as it is reasonably reliable. I even enjoy using interfaces that other people consider to be off-the-wall. Money 2007 (and its recent predecessors) appears to be an exception. I just can't stand to use this application. It annoys the living devil out of me that Microsoft appears to have thrown a lot o...

Using Word in Outlook not working
All of a sudden when I try to write a new e-mail message I get an error saying: "Microsoft Word is set to be your e-mail editor.

The program for the attachment may not have been installed properly or may have been moved or deleted. Reinstall the program in which the attachment was created."

Inconsistent issues with attachments
I am running Outlook 2002 (10.6515.6811) SP3 in a network situation. We also run Symantec AntiVirus Corporate 8.1.0825. I am having an issue opening occasional attachments, particularly .pdf's.

missing attachments to some internet recipients
We are running Exchange 2000 and have a secretary using Outlook 2003. When she sends a Word attachment to a large group of recipients (maybe 40 or so), some don't see the attachment at all. The recipients include addresses on cox.net msn.com ks.rr.com aol.com sbcglobal.net and our own domain. Some users will receive the attachment as normal, but some do not. This leads me to believe that it is not our mail server, as some will be ok. It isn't random either, if one domain had users with no attachment, none from that domain got it. There were 3 recipients on cox.net and none of them...

Word Attachments in outlook view 50% instead of "Normal" View
hi there, I am trying to help someone who is having an issue with Outlook and word. What is happening, is that when she opens a Word attachment from an outlook e-mail, the view area of the word document is defaulting to 50 percent. She then has to go to the view menu and hit the "normal" option in order to read anything that's in the text. I will admit I am a little bit baffled by why this is an issue, yet it doesn't seem to want to go away. Is there anyway to set the default view on an outlook/word attachment so that it opens up in to "normal" view? It would ...
