    Since the transition to Office 2007, we get an issue once in a while, and this one I have not been able to find an answer for...

    Although I assume its not that common for someone to want to attach 20+ files into an email, in our experience, its limited to 19 at a time. But then you can go back and attach the rest. So if you select all of the documents from a folder(over 20), only 19 will show being attached. Its evident on the multiple users tested.

    Its not a size issue because most are small PDFs and a couple various Office documents, and it allows you to go back and attach the rest that didn't make it the first time around.

    Here's what we're using:
    Exchange Server 2003
    Office 2007 SP1
    Windows XP Pro SP2

    Its not a critical mass user issue, just an annoyance for some. Thanks for any info!

    My guess would not be number of attachments but total size. I belive the default total attachment size in exchange is 10MB.

    Thanks for responding! I thought so too at first, but they're all small files. All of the files combine are under 3MB. Plus, either side of the message wouldn't allow the tramsmission or receiving of the email if it were too big, or it would error right away.
