Hi,

None of the users are able to attach files with an e-mail irrelevant to file type or size. It comes with error message "Operation failed". However able to receive e-mail attachments without any problem:

Windows 2000 server,
Exchange,
Outlook 2003, 2007.

We have recently moved the exchange database to different hard drive b'coz were running out of space on C: drive.  May be its got something to do with this problem.

Any suggestions,

Regards,
Neil

Try outlook switches, cleanprofile and safe.
Cleanprofile will refresh outlook profile and safe will run outlook in safemode which will disable all add-ins. Check the status.

As all the users are having same issue so I believe it's got something to with exchange settings instead of individual outlook issue.

I think creating a new profile is still a viable step. Are you running clients in cached mode? I was also not clear on what version of exchange you are running "Windows 2000 server,Exchange,
Outlook 2003, 2007."

How do I check whether the clients are running in cache mode?

We are using exchange 2000.

You mean create a new profile (Re-configure the outlook) for all users?

On OL2007 from the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
On the E-mail tab, click the Exchange Server account, and then click Change.
Under Microsoft Exchange server, you will see a Cached Exchange Mode check box.
