In OWA client attaching .doc or .xls files but OWA is adding as an .lnk file. This file is then striped out by the security on the mail server. When client goes to attach the file he is getting a windows explorer search box instead of the OWA search box.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A .lnk file is the associated shortcut to the actual file. Have them right click the properties of that to see the files actual location.

Have them actually attach the real file.

They could alternatively also zip both files together and add that. Most Exchange servers will strip out .zip so rename it .jpg and have the receiver rename it back to .zip.

Alternatively have exchange accept .zip files.
