GUEENCommented:
Generally you should post a point amount with your question Carlk1.

Try this:
tools/options/mail format - make sure that 'use microsoft word to edit email messages' is unchecked.

Reload entire machine, Reload Outlook, Reload TCP/IP Stack, Delete Dial up connection
and recreate, delete profile and recreate, delete mailbox on exchange and recreate, delete
NT user account and recreate, use account on another machine, scanpst,

Do you have a firewall installed?
0
 
Carlk1Author Commented:
Yes I do actually, that is the only thing I cannot check my self as I am not familiar with Cisco. And funnily enough if I dial in using another dial up method straight into the mode connected to exchange server the attachments will send.

Any ideas what I should check for?

GUEENCommented:
OK what firewall do you have?  I'm mainly famaliar with software firewalls (iffy on hardware firewalls.)
Also what is your anti-virus software?
0
 
Carlk1Author Commented:
Firewall is Hardware Cisco 1600-R series on 1603 router and Virus Software is Norton Antivirus but it still doesn't work when it's uninstalled or disabled.

carl - just making sure I understand.. you have OL2000 and are unable to send attachments (any at all?) and you read the other question and tried the suggestions there?


you don't have OL2000 sp2 installed, do you?

omkCommented:
The question you have a link already answered, so you can check there.
What about clicking Help in OL2000 and than Detect and repair?

GUEENCommented:
Try this -
Zip a file and try sending that as an attachment and see if it gets stripped.

Welcome to EE!
Generally we do not propose an answer around here (since it locks the question for expert input).

See here for 'answer vs comment' suggestions:

angcodata,

Welcome to Experts Exchange!

As shekerra has suggested, you should only leave your remarks in the form of an Answer when you are absolutely, 100 per cent certain that your suggestion is the ONLY perfect solution to the problem posed by the Asker. As such I've rejected your proposed Answer. The Asker can still select it as an Answer, for which you'll receive the points, so generally speaking, it's best to leave it up to the Asker to decide.

Experts Exchange is a collaborative site, and when you "Answer", as opposed to "Comment", you lock the question and remove it from the easily seen open questions. That inhibits the collaborative process.

Further, you'll notice that rejected Answers are distinguished by a bright red banner. Personally, that makes me feel about two inches tall...<grin>

shekerra, soryy for delay, the zip file also did not send
I am using OL2002 not OL200.

Snarl, I read other comments in the previous question and nothing worked. Cheers

I might also add that The dial IP connection is Frame Relay.

Still looking @ your problem (I also have Outlook XP and have no problems with attachments.)
Are you able to send attachments through outlook express?
If so -- we will be able to break the problem down a little more.

starlCommented:
"snarl" *lol* I like that - usually describes me rather well when problems don't solve themselves right away!

don't think I can help much.. firewalls aren't in my field, but I will listen in and learn (s'ok w/you bev? :-)

bare with me shek as I am setting up a test machine with outlook xp and outlook express to try your suggestion.

I had to send the problem comp back to the user, they were losing a lot of work time.  I set it up using dial up to RAS which works sending attachments. This is very slow though.

Carlk1Author Commented:
I think I may have solved it myself, I tried installing the machine without the Toshiba build image and it works.
Toshiba must have some settings that our server doesn;t like.  

Thanks Everyone for your input


Cheers
