What type of files is the User attaching from the desktop?
i.e. what is the file extension? ... also, file size?

it's all files on the desktop - pdf, word, excel, and the file sizes are all pretty small

Try loading Outlook in Safe Mode:
To do that just press and hold the CTRL key on your keyboard while you click the icon to start Outlook.

Now see if the problem still occurs. If the problem doesn't appear when you're running in Safe Mode then it's probably a misbehaving add-in that's causing the issue. Go to Tools | Trust Center | Add-ins and see if there's anything there you can disable.

You could try using a different method to attach the files.

Microsoft Tip:

When composing a message, you can also attach files by using the commands on the Insert tab in the Include group, or drag files from folders on your computer and drop them on the message window.
