Email Attachments in Outlook 2016

email security services by bluesys bury st Edmunds

There is a recent issue with Microsoft Outlook 2016, where you are unable to forward an attachment in an email due to the format showing as plain text.  This was caused by a recent update release – KB4011626 – we do not recommend removing the update since it is a security update.

To workaround this problem, you can:

  1. Open the email
  2. Copy the attachment
  3. Forward the email
  4. Paste the attachment

This seems to be affecting Outlook on both Windows 10 and 7.  Hopefully this will be resolved in the next round of updates
