Windows 7: Cant see document to attach to email in Documents folder using Outlook

Cant see document to attach to email in Documents folder using Outlook

After uninstalling IE 10 upgrade due to compatibility issue with Outlook Web Access, I have a unique problem. I am unable to see a particular folder and doctuments in the folder located in Documents, when attempting to attach it to an email.

The folder and document is there when I use Windows Explorer but not there when I go throught Outlook Web Access. Again, this just started since uninstalling IE 10.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing in Outlook Web Access?

Sounds like the folder or files inside are set as Hidden,
Right click and click on Properties General section on the bottom is the Hidden attributes box checked ?
Or does it say These files are Blocked ?
You can also attempt to Re-name the folder the files are in slightly, add another letter or number to the end.
You can also use this,

If they were hidden, then they wouldn't be seen when viewing them using Windows Explorer (or as I would call it, "the normal way").

Welcome to Seven Forums CDSILVER. I do not use Outlook, or OWA, but see if this applies to your problem

Search Folders created in Outlook do not appear in Outlook Web Access
