I'm now finding that attachments in incoming emails will not open unless they are in Word. Received an invoice today, could not open it in Outlook but could with Mailbird.   :facepalm:

Just checked again and the attachments are not coming through in Outlook as a pdf file but they are in Windows Mail and Mailbird. HELP

Anyone had any more info about this? I got a winter newsletter (yay) but neither it nor the website go into much detail.

It sounds like you are trying to send the document from inside Word? After File > Share > Email you need to select Send as Attachment to retain the original file format. Failing that you could always just save the document, create a new email in Outlook and attach the file.

That works fine for me, Zappa.

I'm having problems trying to send attachments using Word and Outlook.

I click on send as a word document and then forward the email but it arrives in the inbox as a pdf and will not me open it with Adobe Reader.  :facepalm:

This might be worth a try:

Click the “Start” button and select “Control Panel.”

Click “Programs,” click “Default Programs"

Select “Set Default Programs. ”On the left of the screen is a list of all programs installed on your computer.

Click the program you want to associate with a particular file type

Click “Choose Defaults for this program.” Place check marks next to each of the file types you want to associate with the selected program

Click the “Save” button.

The above is for Windows 7 but I expect it will be the same for Windows 10.

Already a Word document. I'm just trying to send it as an attachment but if I send it to myself it tries to open in Reader and then says it can't and wont even let me preview it. :dunno:

I've even uninstalled Adobe Reader, restarted the computer and reinstalled it, to no avail.

Sorry Den, I'm not familiar with Outlook.  When you click 'Send as Word document', is the file already a Word document, or are you trying to convert it from a PDF?
