Case Changing on Email Attachments Outlook 2010

Hi everyone,

Here is a weird one...

Outlook 2010, when you attach an file to an email all the case formatting is lost.

For example, if I attach CustomerReportFINAL.docx it gets sent as customerreportfinal.docx to the end user.

It only seems to happen if i attach a file using the paperclip, or drag a file from a search results window. If i drag the file directly into the email it's ok.

Have tried disabling plugins and suchlike but to no avail.

Any ideas?

All clients on Terminal Server 2008R2
Outlook 2010
Fileshares on 2003 Server (mapped drives)

Thanks

Have you tried opening the outlook in safemode?
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE" /safe

Also please create a new outlook profile and let me know, if you facing the issue.

Thanks!
Krish.

Here is a sample screen shot.

I have attached 'Petty Cash' and it has renamed it to 'petty cash'

Thanks.

I have also noticed another related problem.

If we open a file (word, excel, powerpoint) from a search it also opens the file as lowercase, even though the file has multiple lowercase letters. However if we open it directly from the shared drive (no from the search results) it opens fine!

The plot thickens..

So its not really just related to outlook?

are you the only user with this issue?

Can you check to see if another terminal server user has the same problem

Hello,

All users have this issue. It started after a clean load of 2008R2 and office on the terminal server. But exactly the same software was loaded back on...

If you copy the file from the search result to the desktop...
Is the File Name Still Lower case?

I was trying that just now. Yes it is, but if I copy it from the location directly it is as it should be.

Thanks!

Just thinking in writing here:

So it would seem the issue is specifically related to the search and or search results

Not so much office products at all.

This shared/mapped location....its an simple shared drive/folder on physical 2003 Server?

And this server is on the same domain?

Is there any type of archving or backups done on this server or shared location?
Is it possible the search result might be returning a cached or backup copy of the file, which may have had its characters converted to lower case?


How is the terminal server session being opened?
is it being opened on a Fat Client or Thin Client..
Are all the clients the same?

Are there any users at all that do not have this problem?

Might pay to request attention and get this cross posted in some other areas

Hi,

I finally figured it out.

The indexing on the 2003 machine did not have 'treat similar words with diacritics as different words' ticked under advanced options.

It would appear, although diacritics are not lower/uppercase the indexing fuction on 2003 indexes everything as lowercase unless you select this option!

You were on the right track though.

Thanks for your help
