  • Hello,

    What do you mean by in compressed format? do you get that by in .zip, .cab, .rar etc format? or you mean the by attribute have been changed to compress?

    Please explain your issue in little bit more detail.

  • Hi,


    Can you open the .docx file in Outlook directly? You mentioned it will become a compressed folder, so check the file’s properties, what’s the file extension? Rar or zip?

  • As you said this is only happens on this PC then i guess this is machine specific issue and nothing to deal with exchange as in how exchange handling this .docx attachment.

    lets do one thing. reset the .docx extension and ensure it should only open with Microsoft Word ONLY!. hold the left shift key of your keyboard->right click-> Open with and select Microsoft Word application. Check the checkbox down mentioning that associate this extension with the above program.
