When we try to open excel attachments the open with is grey and only the save to disk option is available on the popup. It says it is an excel file and asks what to do with it and only save to disk is available. When I do a Thunderbird-preferences-attachments-view and edit actions there is no action for an xls listed. On another of our machines the open with is greyed out for both doc and xls extensions even though there are actions listed for the file extensions that point to the excel and word programs.

Mar 10, 2018  Real User Scenario: Mac Outlook 2016 Attachments Greyed Out “Recently I have used Mac OS and I have noticed that attachments are now greyed out in Outlook. The mailbox that can be available in Office 365 and when I access similar mailboxes in Outlook 2016 then, I can easily view and download all attachments.

Less You can see a preview of your message attachments right in Outlook for Mac, instead of opening each attachment in a separate application.

I noticed one other post for a similar problem, but no one had a solution. Not showing the proper icon after your download is likely an operating system issue. Have you run repair permissions to see if that problem gets fixed? As for the real question here, I'm at a loss as to why you're only given the save to disk option. I'm thinking your settings are probably set to ask for that 'save to disk' option. Please go to Thunderbird > Preferences > Attachments. What do you have checked there?

Is it 'Ask me where to save' or 'Save all attachments'? If it's the former, that could be the solution to your problem. Click on the 'save all attachments' and see if TB now changes its behavior.

Tired of digging around for the file you want to attach when you were just working on it earlier? Tired of later trying to sift through emails to find links shared with you? With the Windows release of Outlook 2016, attachments just got a whole lot better. You can now skip the hassles associated with finding and sharing files, regardless of whether you were working on them on your computer, phone or tablet. The next time you go to attach a file to your email, the first thing you’ll notice is a list of recently accessed documents under the Recent Items. The Recent Items list is comprised of documents on your local hard drive as well as OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint—making it simple to pick files you have accessed across any of your devices. If you can’t find what you were looking for in the Recent Items list, we make it easy to navigate to your OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint locations by selecting Browse Web Locations.

If you select a OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint file to share, Outlook’s new attachment feature shows you what permissions you’re granting to your recipients at a glance. Of course, you also have the ability to change these permissions or even attach a copy instead—all without having to go to where it’s stored.

When you send your email, Outlook does the work of granting everyone the right set of permissions behind the scenes. Additionally, because the OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint links now appear side-by-side with your other attachments, you’ll notice a paperclip associated with them and have the ability to search for them just as you do with attachments today. This new attachment experience is available today for users of Outlook 2016 on Windows devices, while continuous improvements and new features will be delivered to Office 365 subscribers. The best way to get the latest features with Office is to subscribe to Office 365. If you aren’t already taking advantage of the new experience, give it a try with your next attachment! —Misbah Uraizee, program manager for the Outlook team Categories • Get started with Office 365 It’s the Office you know, plus tools to help you work better together, so you can get more done—anytime, anywhere.
