Attachments disappear in Outlook/Word email merge

Q: Attachments disappear in Outlook/Word email merge

Recently I send out a bulk email for our CEO (ya, that's right, the big guy!?!). I had a mailing list as my datasource, created the document in Word (as my email editor), attached two files and sent it off. However, once the merge was performed and everything was sent out the attachments either weren't on the resulting mass email, or only the icons for the attachments appeared. Simply, the attachments seemed to be stripped off the resulting email.

Does anyone have an explanation for this? I've looked on the MS Knowledge base to no avail. I'd really like to be able to explain it to the CEO so I look like less of a bumbling idiot!

A: Attachments disappear in Outlook/Word email merge

Hi, I don't have an answer for you but you seem to be trying to do the same thing I want to do - send an email/merge mass mailing and include an attachment to the email. When I start in word and do the mail merge/email function I can send a form letter type text email to everyone in a mailing database but I can't figure out how to have each email attach one (the same) document as an attachment. It sounds like you figured it out. Let me know how you did it and i can let you know if I have the same problem you did or not. Thanks

I have been sending individual emails to roughly 400 of my clients and perspective clients per month.  I have been sending them one by one so I could personalize it. I need to be able to do the following.  
Include the first name of my client after "Good Afternoon _______ "   in the body of the email.
Select 1 of my 3 business email addresses from my Microsoft Outlook 2007 Imap emails.
Include 2 PDF documents.  
Using mail merge via  Microsoft Word does not give these 3 options from what I can find.  This would save me so much time if I can send personalized mass emails to my clients.  Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have been having difficulty opening email attachments (Word or Excel). Our new computer came with XP and a trial version of Office 2003. When the trial ran out I uninstalled Office 2003 and installed my Office 97 version. Now when I try to open an attachment in Outlook I receive the following error: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\.....doc is not a valid Win32 application.
Doing a right click-shift does not allow me to save the document as a word or excel file either.
Also when Outlook downloads the file from my internet service provider, the software icon changes from a MS icon to a wordpad icon.

I have figured out how to do a Merge through word via email, but what I'd like to be able to do is have an attachment go with each of the emails in the merge.

Is there a way to do this? I can't seem to figure it out.

I want it to be an attachment instead of an additional page because this additional document is a form fill and if I insert it into the document it loses the form fill capabilities once the email is sent.

Running Windows 7 machine with Office 2010 Professional. Just discovered that from Word I can send out mass emails (I am the email blaster for our organization) that show up in email as JUST addressed to the recipient without using bcc. Word 2010 BOMBS 75-90% of the time when I click on MAILINGS, Start Mail Merge, Email messages. If I do happen to get past there, when I click on Select Recipients Word bombs, then reboots. Very frustrating since each message I send out must be sent 3 times to get all of our people (more than 50 messages at a time are forbidden by my ISP).

Obviously Word and Outlook are both 2010.

Hello Everyone,

First time poster here...

I'm trying to do an email merge in Word 2007, drawing names and dates from an excel file and emailing to the recipients at various email hosting services hotmail, gmail, etc. My problem is that the formatting doesn't appear to be maintained!

For example, hotmail displays the message is a large (18pt) font, while gmail displays no spacing between paragraphs and text color alternates between black and purple. Has anyone else experienced this formatting problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?

A:Word Email Merge Formatting Problem

Hey speedraca Welcome to TSG. No response in a while so you may have resolved this or realized there is not a good resolution.

You can't control my personal email settings from an incoming email. If its really important you might try sending HTML (I'm not sure how to do that and some accounts don't present that either). Or attach a word document that looks to your specifications and in the email body just a brief note to let the sender know the document is from a trusted or source or something.

Mail merge was designed for snail mail. Someone may have a better answer but thats my two cents..

I maintain a basic database in Excel 2000 and use Word 2000 to do an email merge. There are about 130 records on the list and the emails go to my outbox in my earthlink account. The first time I did it, I merged all records at one time and everyone received the same email twice. The second time I did it, I merged about 20-30 at a time, in different batches, but it still duplicated everyone. Any suggestions on what's going on and then how I can fix it/create a work-around. (One I've half considered is importing the Excel file to Access and trying it from there...but I'm not an Access expert and I'm hoping someone has an 'easier' solution.)

However, Word always gives me an error message that says that Outlook is not configured as the defualt mail client. It instructs me to make the changes in Outlook and to try again.

I've been in Outlooks Tools menu, as the help files tell me, and have checked the settings, and made sure the box is checked to configure Outlook as the defualt email program, but Word behaves the same.

This fixes the problem of having word show an empty address book from Outlook Contact folder when doing a mail/merge in Word.

1. I went to Outlook, clicked on Tools, then Email Accounts, then View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books

2. I then highlighted Outlook Address Book and clicked on Change

3. I then removed each address book listed, clicked on close, clicked on finish.

4. I then went to each Contacts Folder and right mouse clicked and selected the Properties option.

5. I then clicked on the Outlook Address Book tab

6. I put a check mark in the "Show this folder as an email address book"

Prior to all this each contact folder already had this checked. So God only knows why this issue existed but it did.

After doing these 6 steps I went to do a mail merge in word and selected the Contact Folder that had been showing up empty before. It no longer was empty.

Why is it that sometimes I can just click on an attachment and it opens the file, and other times it won't? Even if I right click on the attachment name, and select open file, nothing happens. The file has the .xls or other extension, so Windows 2000 should know that it opens with Excel, right? The only way to fix seems to be to shut all down and reboot. Then it works for a while.

I'm using Office 2003. I went through the steps of doing a mail merge from word. I selected the Outlook contact folder I wanted to use and it shows no contacts in it. However, there are plenty of contacts in that folder. So I tried another contact folder and it worked just fine. Any suggestion on this one folder?


A:Solved: Word mail merge shows empty outlook contact folder

Right-click that Contacts folder and hit Properties. Go to the Outlook Address Book tab and make sure it's checked to be seen as email address book.

I have a friend with a freshly restored computer.
He can no longer read his Emails that have a ***.email attachment.
But ***.eml attachments work fine.

And his computer now works the same as mine, probably because I restored it for him.

If the ***.email attachment is read, OE doesn’t know what to do with it.
His Email with ***.eml attachments work fine.
If the ***.email attachment is renamed to ****.eml .. it reads fine.
If ****.email files are associated to OE .. nothing happens.
The ****.email attachments can be read in M$ Word.

So how would a computer be setup to read ***.email attachments ??
Is C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msims.exe the correct application ??

I’m curious why he’s getting these weird attachments from several sources ??

A:Solved: Outlook Express ***.email attachments

I'm not exactly sure why he gets these attachments. Some could be attached messages from people who use MSN. doesn't say too much, but does mention that they are easily infected with viruses.

You should be able to open these by creating a new file type with an email extension. (Tools, Folder Options, File Types) Just use everything that you see listed for the .eml file type. The program would be "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /eml:%1

An alternative would be to use Regedit. Export the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eml] key. Open it in notepad and change the eml to email. Now doubleclick to merge.

We are running Windows 98 and Office 2000, and one user is having problems opening attachments from Outlook. The computer just freezes. It works if you save the document to the desk top and open, but not if you open straight from Outlook. We have reinstalled Office but the problem still occurs. Office has the latest service packs too.

Has anyone had this before, or got any ideas?

Can anyone advise me if there are limits anywhere to the number of e-mails I can send out simultaneously when using a mail merge to e-mail? I have set up and tested the mail merge and it all works fine, but I don't want to launch the real one only to get problems. I have a mailing list with 1,600 addresses, I'm using Outlook and Word 2011 for Mac to do this.

A:Mail merge to e-mail using Word / Outlook 2011 for Mac

One of the problems your going to face is getting labeled as a spammer. If your sending these internally it may not be a problem. The standard answer for this is to Outsource this if your sending over 100. Good decision not to launch the real one yet.

hi there,

i'm having some trouble with a word doc, then using the built in email to outlook functionality, sending it as a message, not an attachment. attached is the word doc so you can get an idea of what it is supposed to look like (the 7zip attachment "template5 - copy")

and then once it gets to outlook, the text does not respect the indentations and stretches to the window size. so if it's maximized, the text falls out of the limits of the book background (clipboard3 jpg)

and finally, once it does get emailed to outlook, how can i make it so that it's centered in the window? as you can see in that jpg, it hugs the left side. i want that book bg to appear centered aligned to the window.

any help would be appreciated...

While responding to emails, Word (as my editor) 'encountered a problem and needs to close'. The email I am working on freezes until I send the error report, then closes, and WORD opens as a separate new document aside from Outlook. Outlook continues to work. I have the error signature if that matters. If the recommendation is to reinstall Office, I would need to be certain that I don't lose my emails in the process.

I opened a word document from an email (attachment) and worked on it and hit "Save". I am unable to access all the work, and the "Search" is unable to find the document.
Can someone guide me how I can retrieve the file?

I am a newbie and I would appreciate any help urgently.


A:Word document saved in Outlook email

The easiest way to figure out where your document went is to open an email message that includes an attachment, open the attachment, then go to File--> Save As. The Save As default path is always the same for emails, and the reason the search doesn't find it is because it is hidden in a temporary internet file folder. (Something like C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK) Chances are as soon as you click Save As, you will see the document sitting in the temp folder. Then instead of saving the dummy doc you opened, simply right click on the doc you want, and hit copy. Then paste it somewhere (like your desktop for easy access), and there it will stay! Hope this helps!!

Our IT professional says this is a" known bug with the exchange server" when using word. Is this correct?

can we do anything to fix it?

A:Is there a BUG on outlook exchange server when sending email via WORD?

Why is the "IT Professional" not offering to fix it? Can you send the attachment by manually attaching it to the email? I have never had an issue. What version of Exchange?

I am using Outlook 2002 and selected (1) html as email format and (2) "Use Microsoft Word 2002 to edit email messages." Problem is that Outlook attaches one or more empty browser documents called header.htm to each outgoing email. When opening this file (header.htm), it contains nothing.

If I deselect "Use Microsoft Word to edit email messages" no header file is attached. What do I have to do to send emails using the html format while using Microsoft Word to edit messages without this attached header.htm?

My operating system is XP with Service Pack 2 installed.

Thanks in advance for your help

A:Using Word as email editor in Outlook attaches header.htm files

From what I can find it "appears" to be in

" It sounds like or has been modified where text/fields
are included in the header/footer. You will need to make sure nothing is in
either of these two fields or the recipient will always receive the
header.htm file."

IF you have not knowingly customized the then you can delete it and Word will creat a clean one.

I normally use Word 2003 for documents, although I use Outlook 2010. This morning I opened a Word 2010 document and after quite a while of some sort of an installation, I was able to open the Word 2010 document. I did not think too much of it, except that later I was sending an e-mail and attached a Word 2003 document and when I went to check it (i.e. open it up) it opened in Word 2010. How do I disable Word 2010 as my default program to open Word documents. I do not want to uninstall the program, but at this point I am not ready to learn how to use Word 2010.

I can open an email and open an attachment on that email.

I can look on my harddrive and find the same email text file easily enough on my harddrive, and open that text file using notepad.

But I cannot find where the attachment(s) is stored on the harddrive? I've looked everywhere.

The reason is that I want to write a program that will archive windows live emails - and their attachments.
