Outlook attachments no longer linked to message body
Posted on 2013-05-17
I was on an email joke list and over the years saved many of the best jokes. Many of the emails would usually contain a description and a photo, description and photo, description and photo and so on. Now when I open them the pictures are no longer linked to the message body (but are still attachments to email). In each place the picture use to be I see a little square with an x in it and beside this it says...
"The linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Verify that the link points to the correct file location"
Clicking "download photos" doesn't work. This was on an Outlook 2003 but I tried on Outlook 2010 and still the same problem.
All my emails were saved as pst files and this always worked on my XP machine. I think this "might" of became a problem when I made another win 7 machine and reinstalled outlook 2003 and reopened the pst folders.
Is there any way to fix this so it links correctly again? Some of the files have 20 or so photos so it's a pain to make a new email and cut/past the attachments into the email message body.
