    I have recently updated my pc with Win7 (from XP) and I use MS Office Pro
    2007. I have my Outlook configured and have been using it for a few days now
    but since I upgraded, I have difficulty managing file attachments when trying
    to send email.

    I send files often to coworkers by dragging a document into the body of an
    email. This no longer works and I get the symbol of the circle and line
    through it. HOWEVER, it works manually if I go through the steps using the
    paperclip button to attach files.

    It does work between emails though. I can create a new email and drag
    attachments from one email and drop into a the new email.

    I have no problems dragging an attachment OUT of email to my desktop or
    folder but I just can't drag anything into a new email.

    I only send Word, Excel, and PPT files so there shouldn't be any issue.

    Ran Diagnostics and no issues- I also have all the latest drivers and updates.

    Any suggestions?
