Outlook 2010 slow when sending attachments


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.

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.

When trying to open an Excel attachment thru Outlook 07, I get this error message: The system cannot find the specified file


Two possible issues: The file extension may be missing from the file and Excel has issues opening a file directly from the e-mail attachment.

It is always a best practice to download the attachment before trying to open it.

Save the file to your comptuer and verify the file has a 3 digit extension on the end. .XLS an Excel 2003 and lower extension - .XLSX is Excel 2007 extension.

Opening an attachment from an e-mail places the file in a TEMP directory on the hard drive and Excel may have issues saving your changes because of this.

Save the attachment and then open it with Excel. That way, the changes you make will be saved, you will know where the file is and you will not lose your work.

When open attachments in outlook 03 just locks up then opens


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.

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.

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

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.
