View Full Version : Hotmail not accepting attachments

04-06-2011, 04:48 PM
I've started using a Live.com email address in Hotmail.
Don't ask me why I don't use gmail......ok you just did. I use Live.com because it was the only free email service that had my correctly spelt full name left as an email address.

Anyway....People keep sending me emails with attachments. I recieve the email but not the attachment. Hotamil says I've got gigs of storage so that shouldn't be a problem.

Is their a setting within hotmail that is preventing me from recieving attachments?

My browser shouldn't affect what I view in Hotmail, should it?
Am using current Firefox on Win 7 PC and browser on latest iPhone OS.

You viewing the email in Hotmail or downloading the email elsewhere first?

Does the attachment give you a warning, hotmail saying attachment blocked or any such message?

It appears the attachment was blocked as unsafe. Pronelme sorted.

Most email providers now go nuts over security... gets annoying sometimes.

Probably best to ask them to send it inside a password-protected ZIP file or something.
