If you send an e-mail message that contains a shared attachment in Outlook 2007, the attachment is also sent to the recipients

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
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.
