  1. Printing a document directly to Outlook as an email attachment


    Hello all,


    I am trying to find a way to have Outlook be an available printer for documents. I would like to email a PDF that I have opened but not saved on my computer. My thought was to have Outlook available as a print option that would take the unsaved PDF directly into an email as an attachment.


    Any thoughts on this one?

    :)

    Hi,

    For the better clarification of the issue, please answer the following questions:


    • Are you getting any error messages while trying to print the emails?

    • What happens exactly when you try to print an email?

    • Are you able to print any other document?

    • How are you accessing emails, through web browser or mail app?

    I would suggest you to try printing the emails from a different browser.

    Printing a document directly to Outlook as an email attachment

    Attaching a document from SkyDrive as to a Windows Phone email

    OK...

    I've never been able to do this. Here are the steps:

    • Open a new outgoing email on my Windows phone
    • Choose the paperclip "Attach" icon
    • This opens up a window to "Choose Picture"
    • It does not allow me to choose documents from my SkyDrive
    I can go into SkyDrive and choose to share a document through email. However:

    • this does not allow me to attach multiple documents, and
    • it does not allow me to attach a document when I'm responding to another email in an existing thread.
    These are real limitations.

    Also, PDF documents are treated differently still. They are harder to attach.

    I should be able to attach any document originating from an email.

    Thanks. I hope that helps.
