Hi

Im having an issue when trying to send an email with a "Send > Page by email" attachment using Internet explorer through to outlook 2007

The email sends but i get "The action cannot be completed" and the email does not dissapear like its finished, then following this outlook will crash.

We are using outlook 2007 and exchange

I managed to perform the operation with my outlook with no problems, I believe that if you repair your outlook, the problem might be resolved. Use the Installer to repair or even reinstall outlook.
