When open attachments in outlook 03 just locks up then opens

When I receive attachments and open them in outlook 03 it takes several seconds to open. It locks up my PC and then suddenly it will just open, this is with small files like 25k.

Ive tried to notice any pattern but I only really receive excel documents so not really sure if its any otherdocuments.

Anyone help
Thanks

    have you checked your windows firewall?
    lower your security and the attachments should come through faster
    the lock up is usually due to virus checks

Outlook has bad memory management, and this happens often. The only way to relieve this is to save the attachments to your computer harddrive first, and then open it, instead of opening it from the email directly.

Its a pain, but its the cost of using Microsoft products.

Your default email might need to be changed

Open up your new email type in the adress then you should see attachment depending on which email you are using select attachment then you will open up a browse window navigate to your photo/attachment where you have saved it (my pictures) most common select it you might have to wait a few seconds for it to load as an attachment then click send Hope this helps.

I received an email with an html attachment, when I tried to open the document in outlook 2007, all of the contents in the document is not showing.


The sender did something wrong, because Outlook can read html without problems. Try to go to the page itself, if you can find the link, or try to open the html attachment in Internet Explorer. (Right-clik > Open with... > Internet Explorer.)

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.

Can't Open Attachments In Outlook Express


If you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”

To check your e-mail security settings:

1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.

You should now be able to open attachments.

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.
