    • Hi,

      The recipient of my message didn't receive or can't open my attachment.

      The recipient might be using an e-mail application that does not support

      attachments or that blocks attachments of certain file types. If you need to

      distribute files, such as .exe files, to other people, post them to a network

      share or to a Web share that they can access. Or use a program, such as

      WinZip, to package one or more files before attaching them to your message.

      You might have used an Outlook feature that prevents Outlook from converting

      Rich Text format to HTML. Make sure that you do not have any of the following

      features in your e-mail messages:

      * Task requests (task request: A request sent in an e-mail message asking

      the recipient to complete a task. If the recipient accepts the task, it is

      added to the recipient's task list, and the recipient becomes the new owner

      of the task.)

      * Voting buttons

      * User-defined properties

      * Custom forms

      * Embedded OLE objects

      You might have sent the message using Rich Text Format to a contact whose

      e-mail application does not support RTF. You should specify a different

      format to use when sending messages to that contact.

      How?

      1. In Contacts, double-click the contact you want to open.

      2. Double-click the contact's e-mail address.

      3. In the Internet format list, click one of the following:

      * Let Outlook decide the best sending format (HTML format)

      * Send plain text only

      4. Click OK, and then click Save and Close.

      You might have sent the message in MIME format to a recipient whose e-mail

      application doesn't support MIME format. Use the UUENCODE format to send the

      attachment again.

      How?

      1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.

      2. Under Message Format, click Internet Format.

      3. Select the Encode attachments in UUENCODE format when sending a plain

      text message check box.

    • I appreciate all your suggestions and I will research all them...

      My situation here is :

      This email is our comapny email using exchange server and outlook for the

      client so everyones stuff is setupp in a similar fashion.

      One thing that has happened is I installed Excel 2007 (completley separate

      install so as to not disturb.change any of the Office 2002 setup)

      so I do not know if this still would have caused her excel 2002 setup to be

      altered
