    outlook.com attachments

    Hi, My wife and I have just been transferred to the new version on Outlook.com. (Late in the day I know but Sydney is a long way from anywhere else.) Not very satisfactory at all. We use our own domains and the mail that used to be found under the email named folder is now spread all over various folders and three new inboxes. Very annoying.

    But my urgent complaint is that I cannot open any attachments and that is causing me real problems. Using my domain manager's webmail is very slow.
    Has any one else had problems like this and does anyone know a solution?

    Thanks in advance

    Alec

    If you already have Silverlight, update it. If you haven't got it, install it. This is needed by Outlook.com.

    You may be able to fix your first issue in the Connected Accounts section in options (assuming they were set up as connected accounts, which is my guess right now). You can have them all funnel into one inbox if that is what you want.

    And what happens when you try to open attachments?

    Outlook.com may have worked better with Silverlight years ago, but it's not the case now.

    If it required Silverlight it wouldn't be useable with the default Windows 10 browser (Edge).

    Agreed, don't have Silverlight installed on this computer and can open my Outlook.com account and can use Edge if needed.
