    Finding attachments (Outlook 2000)

    When I try to open an attachment in an email message Outlook tells me "The system cannot find the file specified." Yet I can save it to disk. I've checked the settings but can't find a solution.

    Only thing I could find immediately:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q268/7/90.ASP>Q268790</A> OFF2000: Error Message When You Apply CDO Update to Administrative Installation
    otherwise:
    Just started happening?
    Any recent installations/upgrades?
    Operating system?

    Thanks Leif. Using Windows 2000 Pro. No, it did not just start, I've been putting up with this for months. No new upgrades around the time that it started.

    does it also include a file path that breaks on spaces? that indicates DDE problems.

    What kind of file, txt, html, doc or etc, are these that will not open?

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    I had a call from one of our staff and she couldn't open excel files in Outlook 2003 same error message, I found this on MS knowledge base

    Hope this works, I haven't heard back from her yet to see if this fixed it
