Scanned files fail to attach to emails, it says attachment failed every time.


okay, let me try this again. Scan the documents to a file on your computer and save them, then attach them to your email. it's possible either the email program/provider does not allow the attachment type you're trying to send. it's also possible that the file you're trying to send is too large. normally it will tell you if it's too large though. i'd try to scan the file to pdf and send it that way.

If your internet connection is working, you may have an issue with your firewall or proxy server. First, make sure that your firewall is configured to Allow Google Talk; we've provided instructions for some of the more popular firewall applications below:
A proxy server requiring a proxy username and password could also cause this problem. To configure your proxy:
  1. Open Google Talk.

  3. Highlight Connection along the left side of the dialogue box.
  4. Select Use the following proxy .
  5. Check the box next to Proxy requires Authentication .

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.

Hi Neerajsahu,

There are 2 things.

You either have a Permanent firewall or you have a proxy. If you know its a permanent firewall then you are pretty much stuck. But if its a proxy server there is a glimmer of hope.

Obviously the following instruction makes alot of assuptions on your network setup.

Assuming you have a proxy server, you could try going to the following place assuming you are using Microsoft's internet explorer.

Go to
Tools>Internet Options>Connections
Click on LAN Settings
Un tick "Use a proxy server for you LAN...."
Make sure you have ticked "Automatically detect settings"
Click OK
Click Apply then OK
and close IE and then Open IE again.

Now try and download the file again. If this still doesn't work then chances are you will need to see your Admin as they have a firewall appliance that checks everything.

IF the "Use a proxy server for you LAN...." was already unticked chances are you won't be able to get around it as you are downloading a file greater than 3Mb and again see your Admin.

If all else fails home and download your file that you need from there.

Hope it helps
