When I forward an email from outlook express it does not forward the attachments.


  1. Open the Options Menu
    • To change your forwarded mail settings, launch Outlook, then go to "Tools" and "Options." Click the button in the upper right of the box that says "Email Options."
    Change Your Forwarding Options
    • Look at the bottom of the next window under "Replies and Forwards." In the drop-down box under "When Forwarding a Message," change the entry from "Attach Original Message" to "Include Original Message Text."
    Restart Outlook
    • Close and then reopen Outlook. Your messages should now forward inline with the message rather than as an attachment.

I am able to get the attment from a particular sender


Please explain your question further ...
"I am able to get the attment from a particular ... "
a particular what?

If you are unable to receive a particular attachment from an individual, it depends on the attachment. Microsoft Outlook Express strips attachments of Microsoft Files. That is if someone sends you a MS Excel spread sheet or Word document, Outlook Express will strip the attachment for security. There's no way around this. The fix is have the person send you their file in .ZIP format. Then you can unzip it locally.

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

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.

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.
