Any attachments?  Try a .txt file.

Do they get any error messages?

Check rules....personal and transport.

Have they ever been able to forward attachments?

What if they create a new email message...are they able to SEND an attachment.


We are going to need more details to be able to help you.

Which version of Exchange?

There is no such thing as Exchange 2008.

It's either 2007/2010/2013/2016.

Any attachment .  Operation failed.  As a test I had the user forward me a PDF and it came thru so it 's somewhat random.

Thanks.

Ok.  Have the user log onto another computer, create a new Outlook profile and test.

If it works, it's probably with his profile or something in his Windows profile.

I would guess Outlook profile corruption.  Deleting the Outlook profile will remove any corruption, local rules, .OST, etc.

As an additional test, have the user log in through OWA and try it.

If that works, then it definitely isn't in his account but on his profile or machine.

OWA works by connecting directly to the DataStore, bypassing the local computer.
