One of my users has a really annoying issue. When he opens an attachment in Outlook 2003, it always opens behind the email.

Obviously there is a setting somewhere, anyone able to tell me where it is?

Thanks
Jim

Hi, jimxox.

There is no setting.  The user must be clicking or doing something that's causing the attachment to go behind the email.

Hi BlueDevil

Nope - I have tried it myself on his PC. Attachment always opens behind email

Does this happen with all attachments or only some?  Is Outlook configured to use Word as the email editor?

Does Outlook stay in front of all other applications?

Has he used an application to force Outlook to retain Focus?  TweakUI used to have a setting for this...

Possibly set to stop Reminders popping to the front???

User is now reporting all is working fine, even though I have done nothing

Let's put it down to user error!  ;o)

Thanks all for responding
