It could be an outlook add-in. Try starting outlook in Safemode. Close Outlook, Click Start > Run.. type in "Outlook /safe" <--without quotes. Try resending attachment. If that works close outlook and start it normally.
In Outlook, Click File > Options > Add-ins > GO... (next to Com Add-ins). From here you can go through the list and uncheck what options you don't want.
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.
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.
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.
Save the document to your computer, Right click on the attachment, select "open with", then select MS Word. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Have you tried the repair option in Outlook? From the help menu, you can choose Detech and Repair. Also, you can choose to repair all of Microsoft Office from the Control Panel, Add and Remove Programs, find Microsoft Office, and click change. Then You can choose to repair.
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 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.
