If I try to open a Word or Excel attachment in a new email that I want to send my Outlook freezes all the time! What is up with that?
I think I have the same problem, but maybe somewhat different. When I, from a document (Word or Excel), select send via email, it opens an Outlook message with the document attached, as expected, but as soon as I send it, Outlook and Word freeze. If I kill the open message from task manager, the email sends and everything returns to normal. Sometimes, though I have to kill Outlook entirely- but it still sends the email.

It sounds like the attachment may be to large for her to send via email. Email applications have a size limitation on how large of an attachment you can send. I would try to take the file break it down into smaller sizes and send those as attachments to see if they go through. For aneasy test before going through the trouble of creating smaller files make a word document. Name it test write this is a test document on the document and save it so it has some content in it and see if she can send it. If she can its probably the attachment is too large to be sent and you need to send it in smaller file sizes.
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.
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.
The outlook folder for attachment caching on
opening may be full. The files from Outlook cache folder starts with OLK. You may refer to this article to help you clear the folder: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817878
Better use some online storage services like http://rapidshare.com/ to upload big files and then send only link to the file over email or open email account at Gmail (http://mail.google.com); they will allow you sending and receiving big attachments
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
