    A coworker is using Outlook Express 6 on a desktop running Windows XP Pro. She received an email via POP3 with 10 different PDF files attached to it. Only 5 of the attachments showed up in the list of attached files when she tried to forward the original email. It was possible to drag and drop the missing attachments from the original to the forwarded copy of the message. She says she did not have this problem in the past. Not sure where to start to try to solve it.

    Each PDF file is between 20 and 70 KB in size and each opens in Acrobat Reader with no problem.

    There is one universal solution to all OE problems, abandon it just like Microsoft and the the rest of the world did a decade ago. Install Windows Live Mail and it will import all the emails, addresses, and accounts over. Thunderbird is also a valid solution.

    You forgot to mention to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8. It is my understanding the last two versions of Live Mail will not run on Windows XP.

    Windows Live Mail works on Windows XP, not the very latest version but Microsoft does indeed provide the older version automatically for Windows XP. Upgrading to Windows 7 however would also be a wise move.
