Outlook attachments
Currently in Outlook 2007...for some reason every time that I send out an email with attachment instead shown in the attachment bar it shows the attachment icon in the top left hand corner. I already did trouble shooting procedures but I'm unable to fix it. Is there a setting that I'm not able to see? Please I need to some type of response for this issue. Thanks.

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

This could happen if the text format of the message is set to “rich text”.

To change the format of a specific message, go to “Options”, and in the format frame, select “Html” (or any other format except “rich text”).

To change the default format for all messages, go to “Tools”->”Options”->”Mail format”, and select the desired format in the message format list box.

Hope this helps.

It also could be your antivirus. Are these attachments which you have previously sent successfully? If it is not your antivirus, some attachments are blocked by default. Here is a list.

You can also unblock them in the registry, just take this step with great caution.

    Had a similar problem - could send and receive e-mail OK, but when sending attachments they were blocked. Answer was for some unknown reason our address was flagged as a home address (spam), I went to spamhaus and was able to get it back to normal quickly..
