I am using MS Outlook 2003 SP2 on a WinXP SP2 system.  Outlook is not letting me attach files to a new email message and is giving me an error message of "out of memory or system resources" when I try to make the attachment.

I have "fixed" mapi32.dll, removed and reinstalled Outlook, and have run spyware detection software as well as repair the registry.

Nothing has worked.  Any help would be appreciated.
