I have Outlook 2007 and I am just trying to attach a file to a Calendar entry.  When ever I attach a file it shows up the body of the message as an icon.  

When I send an email and click attach file it allows me to attach files as usuall in the attachments section.

I checked and the Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> "Message Format"  is set to "html" and not rich text.

I searched Outlook help but finding no help, etc..

Anyone know why this is happening?

    Accepted Solution

    This is normal operation of Attaching documents to an Appointment or Meeting.

    Unlike Email Messages
    Calendar Appointments do not have an attachments line

    Attachments are added to the Notes Section or Body of the Appointment and are indicated by an Icon.
