Copy and paste multiple attachments from one message to another in Outlook 2003 create copies of first attachment only
Posted on 2009-04-20
Running Outlook 2003 SP3, not in cached mode. This is on Windows XP SP2, back-end is Exchange 2003 SP2.
Receive an Email with multiple attachments and decide to attach these to a new or existing HTML format message by selecting them and then copying them across it will appear to work. However, if you look closely at the attachments in the Email you'll see that although they all have the correct names they are all the same size and in fact are all a copy of the first attachment that was copied across.
The consequences of this can be pretty embarassing or even dangerous!
Has anyone else experienced this issue or had it confirmed by Microsoft as a known issue?
