Unable to Attach file in Outlook Email?

outlook file attachment error

Can’t attach a file in email? Here is a help. Are you following the proper steps to attach the file? At first let’s make sure that you are following the correct process. Cross check from the instructions given below:

Attach a file to Outlook in Windows

  • Click the ‘New’ option in your mailbox to compose a new email. Click on ‘Reply’ if you want to reply to a message.
  • Select ‘Attach file’ in the ‘include’ option of ‘Message’ ribbon.
  • Select the file from its location on the computer and click ‘Insert.’

OR

  • You can simply drag the file on the message body for making quick attachment.

If you are following the above process correctly, let’s have a look on the possible reasons why you can’t attach a file in Outlook email with their respective solutions.

Outlook considers attachment file as Suspicious

Outlook considers some file extensions as malware and therefore restricts them as attachment to save users’ systems. For this follow the steps:

  • Go to outlook.com and sign up to your account.
  • Click on the gear icon (locate it at the top right corner of your inbox.)
  • Select ‘More mail settings’ from the drop down.
  • Under ‘Writing emails’ option, click ‘Attachments.’
  • Select the radio button (small circle) in front of ‘Always send files as attachments.’
  • Click ‘Save.’

Try to attach the file after making changes. It will resolve your problem. You can also convert the file to Outlook compatible extension.

Another reason why attachments are considered suspicious is the content inside it. Yes, Outlook (actually all emailing service) scans the content of attached document for spam. If your file contains any spam link or image, remove it and then try again.

File size exceeds Outlook Limit

The default Outlook limit for attachment files is 20MB. So, it is clear that any file exceeding this limit will not be accepted as attachment. Consider dividing the file content to make smaller size files.

Selection Window goes to Background

The file selection window moves to background and the user keep on waiting for it. When one window is open in the background, you will not see anything no matter how many times you hit that ‘Attach file’ button. So, minimize all the tabs to find the selection window.

Still can’t attach files? Talk to experts at Outlook customer service for quick solutions. The number is toll-free and accessible all the times.

Tips to Solve Spam Filter Problem with Yahoo Mail

Spam mails are the most annoying email issues. It is impossible to deal with thousands of irrelevant mails coming to your inbox calmly. Especially if you receive them on daily basis and it becomes a task to find work related mails from the heap of junk emails. Yahoo! Mail offers spam filters to reduce this issue. These filters directly send the suspicious mails to spam folder. However, sometimes these filters become problematic and don’t work as designed. This means spam mails are not transferred to spam folder or important emails are sent to spam folder. This creates difficulty for users as their inbox fill with spam email.

Yahoo support services provide some guidelines to ensure that filters work properly and mails are sent to correct folders. So, try these solutions if you can’t find your mails in correct folders:

Solve Spam Filter Problem

  • Every email goes through spam filter before moving to next filters. So, if you can’t find your emails in inbox or any other folder, check spam folder.
  • Check if you have created any empty filter (filter without rules.) In case this filter is at the top of all other filters, other filters’ rules will become void and mails will be sent to inbox.
  • Create multiple filters sensibly. A filter uses all rules defined to separate emails, if any of the rule is not matched, the filter will not apply. So, if you want a filter to satisfy any of the two rules, create two separate filters.
  • Another reason for a spam filter not working might be conflicting rules. Avoid using positive and negative phrases together in a filter.

Add Spam Filter to Emails

  • In your Yahoo mailbox, right-click on the suspicious email.
  • Now, click on “Filter emails like this” to open the Add Filter window.
  • yahoo filter
  • Give a name to the filter, set rules.
  • Find “move the message to” option and select “Trash” from the drop-down. Click “Save.”
  • yahoo mail filter

Working with the above suggestions will help in resolving the spam filter issue. If not, you can search online for Yahoo Customer Care technical support and talk to experts about your issue. Apart from official Yahoo support service; there are various third party service providers who offer effective and quick solutions for technical issues. Contact Email Support is one of such independent email support providers offering 24 hours services in all 7 days of the week.
