I cannot preview Work or Excel attachments, even though all of the previewing options are all checked in Trust Center. Even if I save the attachment, I cannot open the attachment - I get an error that it is corrupt. If I right-click on the saved file and choose Unblock, then I can open the file. If I send an email with an attachment to myself, I get the same issue opening the attachment and the same issue when saving the attachment.

I am almost sure that this worked on initial install and this began after installing another program, but I don't recall. I've tried repairing Office and uninstalling and reinstalling Office to no avail. Outlook Safe mode does not work either.

Microsoft sharepount workspace proxy for outlook add-in

OneNote notes about outlook items

Inactive:

Microsoft Access outlook add-in for data collection and publishing

Microsoft VBA for Outlook Add-in

Disabled:

Anybody have this issue? Would there be some registry keys to look into here?

Thanks for any help.

Without knowing what program is blocking it, we aren't much help. You need to disable that program - " Unblock" command is not a normal windows function - I'm guessing that program is the cause of your problems.

What security software is installed in windows?

I have microsoft security essentials installed.

Also, if I drag an attachment from outlook to the desktop, I can then open the attachment without an issue.

How can I debug this, or figure out what is blocking?

I tried clean boot and had the same issue. Trying to open the attachment fails - it says corrupt and preview does not work either.

Thanks for the reply. I checked out the article and tried the group policy edit but sadly it did not work. I rebooted just to make sure, and it still did not work.
