These type of problems can occur either due to file size or file type issues. You can solve file-type issues by renaming the attached file to say file.doc. If its a file size issue, you can zip the files using winzip and then re-try sending the file. winzip is easily available on internet.

    In this case, you can rename the file as a filename.txt and ask receiver to rename the file once he receives the new file.
    Generally renaming to a "safe format" like *.txt works. Give this a try and it should work fine.

    Cheers,
    Prashant.

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 have made an powerpoint presentation.I want to send it as an email.but when I click the send option.it doesnt get sent.what can be the possible problems? I go to microsoft power point.Select the file for...


Because you must use another program to send it - like Outlook.
Just do it the correct way: save the ppt file on your pc, close PowerPoint, open your mail program (Outlook or whatever) , compose a new mail , attach the ppt file to it and send the message to its destination.

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 !!!

Need to delete email w/2 large of attachment after clicking send


1. Go the File menu, then choose Work Offline in order to stop Outlook from trying to send all mails:
2. Switch to the Outbox.
3. You now have two options:
a. Move the message: you can drag-and-drop or use the Edit: Move to Folder menu item to move the e-mail to your drafts folder. This will allow you to re-open the offending e-mail and slim it down by removing the large attachments before attempting to resend it.

b. Delete the message: this will immediately remove the message from the Outbox and put it in Deleted Items.
4.

If you receive an error at this point that says the message is being transmitted, close Outlook, wait for Outlook to exit (you may need to use Task Manager and wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit), and then start Outlook again and repeat steps 2-3. In some cases, the item may not be released until Outlook has restarted.
5. Go to the File menu, deselect Work Offline to start sending and receiving mail again.

Blocked attachment


it depends on the type of file. many types of files can be used to harm other people's computers. this is why viruses spread.

your email is just warning you. try zipping the file up, using winzip.

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
