Outlook sends email fine without attachments, but when you attach something, anything, it freezes and locks up. I have to use task manager to kill outlook.

Hi Edmund,
Try this..
First, try running Outlook in 'Safe Mode' and then send something.. If it works, but you want to work in 'Normal Mode' then go to the Trust Center, and disable SpamBully, you might find that you'll be able to send attachments.
You should try this version of SpamBully, it works better with 2007:
http://www.spambully.com/sb4download/beta/spambully4outlook-4.2.0.7.exe
You might need to restart, of course..

Good Luck

Outlook is sending multiple emails


Check your outbox and make sure the email you tried to send is no longer there because outlook tends to try and try sending a previously unsent email message.
Make sure the outbox is cleaned up.
In sending email with attachments, make sure the attachment is not too big that it exceeds 5mb to avoid these type of incidents, as a work around for multiple attachments you can try sending them in a different email message.

I can't turn on Outlook. I tried to send an email


First of u should know about he limit of attachment, if its ur orgazniation email account then u should ask for the attachement sending policy most organizations r allowing only 5 mb attachment to send, if you r using gmail with outlook then gmail will allow u to send up to 20 mb attachment. before u cancel the message from the outbox u need to cancle the send/recive once that cancled u will be able to easily delete the message from outbox.if you r not able to open outlook u need to close ur outlook from taskmanager , open the process tab and close the outlook.exe session. or you can restart your computer and open ur outlook. u can open ur outlook safe mode to delete that sending file.

I can't send an Omniform attachment via Microsoft Outlook even if I convert the attachment to an HTML document.


I am not sure if this has been solved here but you can send the attachment as a zipped file. Right click on file. Choose send to. Choose zip file. Now attach zip file to email.

Are there instructions available, for someone not that PC literate, to send an e-mail with a Winfax Pro document as an attachment?


If you know how to send an email, the rest is easy.. Firstly, save your winfax document into your "my documents" folder and make sure you remember the file name. Setup your email as you want it then click on the "add attachment" button at the top of the screen (this depends on which email system you are using but most attachments can be added from the new email screen). In hotmail and windows live, use the attach button and select file. In outlook and outlook express, use the attach button on the top toolbar. Click on file and a dialog box will open asking for the file you wish to attach. Use the box to navigate to your my documents folder and then select the winfax file you saved earlier. If the file is not showing, click on the file type box and select all files. once you have found your winfax file, select it and click on "ok" or "attach". Wait for the system to upload your file and then click on "send".. You're done !!!

Sending attachments in Outlook 2003


Try saving the document to your local drive first, then send the file as an attachment. When the file is opened from your Outlook, it resides only as a temp file while you are viewing it, then to try to send that temp file, it causes issues with outlook. Save the file first, then send it, but don't try to send the file from the temp view whilst opening the file that is still in another e-mail

Send attachments to some mail recipients but not others


I think not.

First send email to everyone with everything everyone needs to know, then another to the ones who need files. OR emails to people who dont need attachments and spesific emails to those who need attachments.

Microsoft outlook


The problem is with the other persons email service provider. Some providers limit the size of attachment you can send or recieve. You can sometimes get round this by breaking the attachment up and sending it in smaller size files. or use a webmail system that doesn't have a limit on attachment size e.g. hotmail.
