Link to a file on network drive - Outlook 2003
Posted on 2005-04-12
In outlook 2003, can I set an attachment **link** in an email (without using UNC paths)? ie T:\Folder\info.xls
This is just to send links to shared documents round in an internal office environment, where the documents will be on a common network drive.
I was pretty sure that there used to be an Insert.. File.. Insert button dropdown.. Insert as Hyperlink option on other versions of Outlook, but I'm not seeing it in 2k3.
I don't want to send the entire document as an attachment, otherwise there'll be lots of copies of it, just a link to the one central copy instead. Creating a shortcut to the attachment seems to work, but is a bit awkward to use as it needs to be saved out of the email to be used...
