  • Content Conversion is a separate issue from accessing items from Outlook. Do you mean that when you double click on the archive mail from Outlook and then you try to open the attachment, it does not open?
  • May be i knew the reason.


    for the clients pc who the attachment dont open i didnt install the Add-In outlook.

    is this the reason? if this is the reason, now after i archived the mails if i install the Add-In does this solve the problem???


    best regards..

  • Hi there


    Yes, this is the reason.

    You need to have the Add-in to open up archived messages.

    After installing the add-in, you should be able to open the message.


    And just as a not: big red text almost always makes people skip a message.

    It's usually not good behaviour to do in forums ;)
