Outlook 2007 Unable to send attachments

Hi,

I have strange problem in that all of a sudden Outlook refuses to send attachments. I've disabled Comodo which I use for security. I also tried creating a new profile and switching to that profile but that didn't work.
pop/smtp is the the only method configured and my service provider assures me they're not blocking it.

Mail without attachments works fine.

Any suggestions as to what I can try to resolve this?

OS is Windows 7.

Thanks in advance.

Are you getting any error message? If yes, please provide the exact error message. Also I would recommend you to disable any security software installed on your computer and restart.

Gradually increase the server time-out setting until the issue is resolved.

Oddly this was a problem with the service provider which was rectified. Apologies for delay in responding.
