    HTML v. RTF (Outlook 2002 (xp))

    Good morning,

    Can anybody help me with the following:

    Our users recently migrated to Office XP.
    They were used to working with Exchange Client, and now have Outlook.
    One of them wants to print her e-mails.
    So far so good.

    What seems to be the problem?
    Well, she want to see, on her paper print, which attachment was added to the received e-mail. (this used to be a little pictogram as you would see on for example your desktop).

    I tried to change from HTML to RTF, this works as long as the sender sends his/her mail as RTF, not if the sender uses HTML. Is there any other way to solve this problem?

    Many thanks in advance!

    I believe the solution posted here in the past was a little macro that would insert the names of the attachments at the beginning or end of the body of the message. There is no official Microsoft supported fix, to my knowledge. JohnBF posted something related just within the past week or so. (Thread was related to deleting attachments, but you could just use the parts related to inserting the file names.)

    It was <!post=this,256531>this<!/post> thread but the code there is triggered from Item_Send (what was I thinking?). For this question I would probably write it to loop through all recieved messages in the default Inbox upon Application_NewMail so that if they are HTMLBody and if they have attachments, then plunk the att names into the Body. Or you could steal the Print button to run an instance of Word and Print from there, as OldDog has demo'd before.
