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."
Close and then reopen Outlook. Your messages should now forward inline with the message rather than as an attachment.
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.
Whenever I send attachments like pictures on MS Outllok 2003, the e-mail gets hung up in my Outbox and yet the recepient gets my e-mail about 12 times. I have to go into the outbox the next day and try to delete it many, many times until it gets deleted.I'm using Vista on a new HP system. I hope you can solve this problem that has plagued me for a long time, even with MS Office 2007.
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
if you are configuring outlook to a mail server , you should ask administrator what Max attachment limit is. usually there has to be a limit on sending attachments and it differs from mail service provider to other
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.
