Hi, Has anyone of you observed problems with mail attachments in Sierra? Two days ago I installed Sierra and since then I've heard from mail recipients that they can't open attachments I sent them. This doesn't seem to be restricted to a specific file type, the problem occurred with. I haven't tried other file types. The problem has occurred with recipients using Exchange in Windows, an Android tablet and a web mailer.
In Thunderbird on Windows, however, the file could be opened successfully. I haven't seen it myself, but from what these users describe, they see the paper clip icon in the list of their mails, but in the mail itself there is no file to open. Is this something that others have experienced as well? I've googled the problem, but I couldn't find anything.
I can in fact reproduce the problem. An attachment sent from Apple Mail does not show up in Outlook.
There's no paper clip icon shown for the e-mail, and in the message it body there's an image placeholder with the following text: "The linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Verify that the link points to the correct file and location.
Any ideas? But it doesn't seem to a wide-spread problem, because so far there are no "me too" replies. Oct 13, 1 0 Milan, Italy. Aerdna said:. Nov 10, 4 0 Good Old Germany. I have the same problem. But when i uninstall Clive's Anti Inline plug-in and restart Mail, the attachment is shown in Microsoft Outlook on a pc. When i only disable the plug-in, the attachment is not shown in Microsoft Outlook. I think it's a plugin problem. I reported it to support clivegaleni.
In my case the problem disappeared after I uninstalled the Anti Inline plug-in disabling wasn't enough, I had to really uninstall ist. I sent several e-mails to the developer asking if he knew about the problem, but he never replied. Oct 5, 63 I noticed the same problem today, and up until now had the same plugin installed. Funnily enough, if I only had ONE recipient, the attachment stayed attached.
Only when adding CC: people the attachment would be ripped out. Thanks for the hint! Jan 24, 29 UK. Any update on this? Does Anti Inline still have issues? Still the same issues! Befetti macrumors newbie. Dec 26, 7 0 Perth.
