Problems with Attachments in Outlook

I ’m running Office 2003, just upgraded to SP3 and also just installed some extras to allow conversions from documents created in Office 2007 (because I was trying to read some documents created in office 2007).  I am NOT using Exchange server.

For almost a month now, I am having an intermittent problem sending documents as attachments. Sometimes they go through OK and sometimes when people get them at the other end they appear corrupted€ or missing portions of the file.

My ISP did do an upgrade in my area in late October and that seems to be about the time I started having problems. I talked with my ISP and they said no way could it be anything to do with them that my e-mailed documents are getting corrupted. The ISP suggested I turn off my outgoing e-mail scanning so I did and although the problem seems to happen less frequently, it is still happening.  I can'€™t seem to pinpoint any common theme €“ it'€™s sometimes files that I created and sometimes files others have sent me and I have updated to return.  I have no idea if that is what is causing me problems or not. The other thing is that it is both Excel and Word files.

I have searched the web for answers about what might be going on here and can't really find anything. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Should I reinstall my office 2003?

I do not get any error messages. i am talking about small attachments, in Word they would be 5 pages or less.

Hello pc_helper,

One main thing that causes attachment to corrupt is a full Outlook Temp folder. Delete the files in Outlook Secure Temp Folder OLK

OR
OutlookTools to access Temp folder
