"Some of the files could not be found..." error in Vista Windows M

#1
I am receiving this error indication while attempting to send a 1.6 MB MS
Word 2007 document as an attachment using Windows Mail. I get a similar
"object can not be found" error in Outlook.

I can send emails without attachments. I've confirmed that I can send a 300
KB Word document as an attachment. This would be a size issue. My email
server has a 30 MB size limit so a 1.6 MB file shouldn't be a problem.

I've been unable to locate an file and/or attachment size limit settings
within either Windows Mail or Outlook and the Help files have nothing on
email file size settings except for the mail server reference. Any ideas?

Make sure the Word application is not open when you attached the file.

Re: "Some of the files could not be found..." error in Vista Windo

Thanks Steve.

I'd saved the document and closed MS Word 2007 but reopened the document to
send it as an email via Outlook. MS Word 2007 insisted that I establish an
Outlook profile instead of allowing me to use my Windows Mail account...???
My Outlook email resulted in an "object can not be found" error message.

This was my first email using the new Outlook 2007 and, despite having
received a successful email test, I decided to send the document as an
attachment using Windows Mail. I'd previously used Mail to send several
other emails without difficulty. When this resulted in a similar error, I
didn't even think about the document still being open in MS Word 2007.

I sure wish the error prompt had said "...file in use..." instead of
"...files could not be found..."!

Of course, I still don't understand why I received a similar error while
trying to email the document from within MS Word 2007.

Thanks, again - Jeff

WinMail is not coupled to Office the way Outlook is. Save the file to disk.
Then open WinMail and compose the message and then either drag the file from
Explorer overtop the message and drop it to attach it, or use Insert | File
| Attachment or use Outlook and set it as the default mail program. WinMail
is not part of Office, so it doesn't have the level of intercommunicability
that Office programs have with each other.

Re: "Some of the files could not be found..." error in Vista Windo

"xyz" writes i could not send attachments in vista windows mail . I
eventually set my default programs to make windows mail and internet explorer
the default programs..Write your .email message then click on "insert" and
attach file from this location and not using the attachfile paper clip icon
you should then be able to click on the email letter icon in word and send
this way as well

I couldn't send an excel file as an attachment in Windows Mail. The file was
already saved to disk. It worked when I closed the Excel application
completely!
