SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, if you send a shared attachment, you may experience the following symptoms:
  • The attachment is saved in the Document Workspace site that is specified by the sender.
  • The recipient of the e-mail message receives a copy of the attachment in the e-mail message.
  • The e-mail message also contains a link to the shared attachment in the Document Workspace site.
Because the attachment is attached to the e-mail message as a shared attachment, the sender expects that the e-mail message contains only a link to the attachment in the Document Workspace site.
