It is not clear to me how attachments are not working. DO you mean the attachments that come in an email are not being able to open if Word is used as default editor ?

What version of Word is used ?

When the user selects Rich or Plain text he can send an attached link word file. When he switches to word as the default editor and send the same file the user recives the path link below with no ability to attatch to the link?

We have two situations here.
1, The user selects an attachment in this case it is a word shorcut to a network path and attaches that to his email.
He sends it out to me as a test and I recive Ok no problem. I can open the link and the path opens no problem.
I also see the shortcut as an attachment within outlook.


2. The user then selects oMicrosoft Wrd as his default word editor and completes the same actions again.
I do not see the shorcut as an attachment I only see this sentance at the bottom of the email.

He has this problem only when using Word as his editor?

I hope this makes more sense.

Can you explain the steps this person is using to insert the link to the document file?

Is he click "Insert" on the menu bar and then click "Hyperlink", then addressing the hyperlink?

Thanks.

We are unable to replicate the error it seems to have resolved itself? Bizarre.
