Unable to attach files in Webmail (the attach window displays underneath the “to”, “from”, and “subject” boxes)

Posted on

Some users are reporting issues with sending attachments in Web Mail. When trying to attach a file to an email message, the attach window displays underneath the “to”, “from”, and “subject” boxes and does not allow uploading of attachments.

 

This behavior occurs in most modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. This is due to an outdated or missing installation of Microsoft Silverlight. Once Silverlight is installed / updated to the latest version, the issue should be resolved. You can download the latest version of Silverlight from the Microsoft website.

Once Silverlight is installed, fully close your web browser (all open windows / tabs) and then re-open it. Attaching should now work as it normally would. Should you still have issues, give us a call at 718-921-6159 or send us an email.

Using Webmail

Web Mail is a browser-based email client. Outlook Web Access lets you access your Hosted Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox from any remote location. While web mail works in most modern browsers, we recommend using internet explorer, as some third party browsers such as Firefox or Chrome may experience some compatibility issues. Internet Explorer is 100% guaranteed to be supported and compatible.

Steps

When you first access web mail, it will ask you to choose either public or private.

Public: Recommended for when you are accessing from a shared computer, or a computer you do not personally own. This sets additional security such as logging you off automatically after a few moments of inactivity as well as disabling of the save password feature.

Private: Recommended for when you are using your own personal computer, such as one from your home or a personal laptop. This uses more relaxed security, allowing you to save your password, and disables idle log off.
