Outlook 2010 attachments changing order of attachments

When selecting attachments to an email in a certain order, we have noticed that the recipients receive them in a different order.  In doing a couple of tests to myself, I see they are rearranged to file size order.  Where in our settings can we change this?  We would like the recipient to receive the attachments in the same order as we sent them.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately there is no control in Outlook For this.

Only Alternative would be to try Zipping the Files in the order you require and Send them that way.

However, even still once extracted if the user has arranged the files in their folder by Size or Name, they still might not be in the correct order.

If it were me I would simply name them in they order they should read them.


ect ect

You could even include instruction in the email on the order to open/view them

However, even still you cannot stop someone from opening/reading 3 before they open 1

Try selecting files by holding Ctrl then click on 2nd, then 3rd, 4th... And finally click on 1st file which will send in order to recipient.

No matter how you order the attachments, they are scrambled when the recipient receives them.  Referencing in the email the handouts is the only best bet.  Thanks to all!
