outlook attachments

Recommended Posts

I guess I am not sure of the question. All you need to do is put whoever on the email that you want, including everybody even if there's 1000 people you want to send an email to. Once all of the people have been added, all you need to do is either drag the file you want to attach into the email or click on that attachment button that looks like a paperclip. If for some reason the file will not attach or the options are greyed out then your email is not in HTML mode, just click on the icon that says switch to HTML mode and then the option for attachment should be enabled.

thank you. I apologize that my question was not clear. I know how to send an attachment the problem is that when I do a Personalized Multi-Recipient Mass Emails Quickly Using Outlook Mail Merge it does not allow me to insert attachments.Thanks for your help.

It's like we said before outlook doesn't let you do this. These are the sugestions we gave you before to work around it. http://answers.groovypost.com/questions/2441/how-to-add-an-attament-to-a-mass-email-in-outlook-2010

The only other alternative is to find some third party add on software for Outlook that gives the functionality that you want.

Its likely there will be something out there but it probably won't be free and it could cause problems or not work very well.

What sort of file are you wanting to attach?

If you are sending it to all recipients why not just add it to the word document as an addendum before doing the mail merge.

      I have read a few of your articles about scheduling Outlook emails. I have a question about taking this a step further. In our office, we have Outlook 2010.
      Issue – some of the execs have now asked that the subordinates email them a daily plan. Every morning we email our calendars with “limited details” to our bosses. Many of us forget when we come straight into full voicemail boxes and back-to-back meetings. So I have been looking for a way to use a Rule or some other mechanism to do this each weekday automatically.
      I hope you get the idea by now, but… Each morning at a specified time, Outlook will email my daily calendar with limited details to a specified list.
      Of course, we all share calendars with each other. Some of the bosses will take the 2 clicks to check our calendars, but others want it sent as described above.
      Any ideas?

      Hello,
      I posted my question at the link http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/how-to-automatically-bcc-in-outlook-2010/ yesterday, but today that link is not working. What I want to do is slightly more complicated than what was posted at the link. Below is my original post.
      What I am trying to do is create VBscript to CC or BCC (it doesn’t matter which) in the mailbox that I am sending from. I have a total of 5 mailboxes, including my personal and 4 shared boxes. I don’t want this applied to my personal or 1 of the shared, so I want to specify the mailbox names that it is being sent from. If it is one of the 3 it will place a copy of the email being sent into the inbox of the mailbox being sent from.
      I know this can be easily done with creating rules, but we have shared mailboxes and due to how we log in, some people don’t like the rules and they uncheck them, very irritating. Also it appears there is no way to record a macro in Outlook, just create one.
      I am trying to do something like this:
      Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)If From = "MailBox1@domain.com" Then Forward.Recipients.Add "MailBox1@domain.com"End IfIf From = "MailBox2@domain.com" Then Forward.Recipients.Add "MailBox2@domain.com"End IfIf From = "MailBox3@domain.com" Then Forward.Recipients.Add "MailBox3@domain.com"End IfEnd Sub I am not familiar with VBScript in Outlook at all, starting to get familiar with it in Excel though. Can someone please take a look at this and see if you know how to do this?
      Thanks,
      Chris
