Mail with image and PDF not displaying correctly on Outlook

Environment and problem
OS X Mountain Lion, Mail 6.1 (everything up to date)
Emails with mixed image and PDF attachments send from my MacBoox Pro are not being displayed correctly when received on Outlook. It is not an Outlook problem.
Multiple inline images - ok
I compose an email, rich text format, insert severnal inline images, send to colleage on Windows 7 using Outlook, all received ok. He sees the message with inline images.
Multiple inline images and PDF - not ok
I compose a similar email with multiple inline images, but attach a PDF. This time all of the attachments (images and PDF) appear at the end of the message when viewed in Outlook.
Gmail browser comparison
I repeat the above from a Gmail account via Safari and I can make an email with inline images and PDF attachments and it works.
Any thoughts, tips, bug reports, etc appreciated.

No - can't be an Apple fan and then critisise MS for being proprietry
My problem was solved by installing Attachment Tamer.
It could also have been solved by emailing from Gmail directly.
The guys I work with use Outlook and were suprised to see this behaviour.
It's only basic OS X email that has a problem.
I wholeheartedly agree that the standard for emails are not conducive for rich layout control.
But - when my email just has images I had no problems. Take for example the email notifications we're getting from this thread - there are images and layout etc and work fine.
The key feature from Attachment Tamer hints at the problem (and its solution):
send images embedded in HTML layout and safely mix embedded images with other attachments;

  • Upgrading APEX from 3.2 to 4.0 images and buttons not displaying correctly

    APEX: 3.2.1
    Attemping to upgrade APEX from 3.2 to 4.0. The installation script runs fine and updates the database successfully. I run the .sql to import the images and it ran successfully however when I attempt to access the APEX home page, the images are not loaded and the buttons don't do anything. I did some research through google but did not come to anything that resolved my issue. Does anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks for your time...

    If you are using mod_plsql, you need to run @apxldimg.sql script with SYS user file present with Apex installation. Also provide the location of your apex folder as parameter to this script.

  • PDF's in Mail and Preview not displaying correctly

    Ever since upgrading to Yosemite PDF's are not displaying correctly. Every time i generate a PDF of a sales quote it seems to lose a lot of information.
    But the strange thing is.....
    Preview and Mail both show PDF with missing text.
    When I open using "Quick Look Attachment" within Mail or Adobe Acrobat it looks perfect.
    When emailed, recipients (mostly Windows users) seem to have no problem opening it and seeing all text.
    So far seen that issue is only in Preview and Mail
    Only has happened since upgrading to Yosemite
    PDF is created using web based ZOHO CRM to build quotes.
    See image below to see the difference in what Mail and Preview sees compared with how other apps open the same PDF.
    NOTE: sensitive info has been purposely blurred on image.

    Do a backup, using either Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure files/data can be recovered. Two backups are better than one. 
    Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
    Isolating an issue by using another user account
    Try booting into the Safe Mode using your normal account.  Disconnect all peripherals except those needed for the test. Shut down the computer and then power it back up after waiting 10 seconds. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear and again when you log in. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. When you reboot normally, the initial reboot may be slower than normal. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application un-installer. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don’t do them all at once.

  • Pdf not displayed correctly in preview

    We have a new A) scanner (colortrac Ci40) and when we scan a pdf it is displayed in preview as if it is all wrinkled up.
    Only in prewiew and if imorted in vectorworks. (on both OSX 10.5 and 10.6)
    The same problem appears on a iPad.
    It is not displayed correctly.
    In all other programms I tried it is displayed properly.
    We also have a small a4/a3 scanner from konica minolta and these scans display corectly in preview.
    Is this only a preview problem and should I ignore it?

    Hi there,
    I have a very similar problem: a number of pdf files that I can see perfectly well in Safari/GoogleChrome do NOT show correctly in Preview or ANY iPad app I have (Notability, Adobe, PDF Expertm iAnnotate, Dropbox etc.).
    The problem is that punctuation -- with the expection of periods or bolded text -- does not show properly. For example, commas and quotation marks to not show, and some numbers to not show.
    Moreover, once I have annotated/viewed the problematic file on the IPad and resync to dropbox to view on Mac vis Adobe (which I do with most pdf files with no problems), I get an error message upon reopening the pdf file saying "Cannot extract the embedded font 'FAFWQV+--unknown-2--'. Some characters may not display or print correctly." (the 'quoted' text changes each time). When opening in Preview, no error message appears, though the fole is still lacking punctuation etc.
    Here is a link to one problematic pdf:
    NB: the file is in Mandarin, however I can successfully open/edit/annotate/sync other pdfs using Mandarin font so I'm not sure if the language is related to the problem.
    I would be extremely grateful for some help with this please!

  • Photoshop TIFFs with layer masks do not display correctly

    I am sure other people must have this problem, but I cannot find any related posts so here goes:
    I open an image using the "open in external editor" command (typically a RAW file converted to a TIFF), edit in Photoshop and save the file (as a TIFF, I do not use PSD format)
    If the PS edit contains any layer masks or alpha channels (masks in the channel pallet) it does not display correctly when it reappears in Aperture. Only the top most mask will display, assuming I have multiple layer masks in the PS edit.
    Not only will the TIFF only appear as the mask in Aperture, but Aperture will print or email the mask, not the PS edited file as it should appear.
    It seems that Aperture only recognizes the layer mask (or alpha channel mask) as the image, and all the other layers etc are disregarded.
    Is this a confirmed bug, or is there some setting I have not correctly configured or some other issue?
    I love Aperture, but this problem is nearly a deal-breaker for my workflow, and would be for any serious photoshop user, I would imagine!
    I cannot believe this is still a problem in version 1.5, which is the version I am using (thus my system is 10.4.8)

    I assume you mean in the edited PS TIFF file:
    In different cases I have either:
    A. A TIFF file with layer a layer mask
    B. A TIFF file with multiple layer masks
    C. A TIFF file with an alpha channel mask
    D. A TIFF file with multiple alpha channel masks
    E. A TIFF file with any combination of the above
    the outcome is the same, they all do not display correctly in Aperture. It does not seem to matter if the file was opened in PS from Aperture via the open with external editor command or if it was worked on outside Aperture entirely then imported. I do have maximize compatibility in PS checked (though I understand this is only for PSD files, though perhaps I am wrong here)
    any thoughts?

  • HTML Form Not Displaying Correctly in Outlook 2010 (Exchange 2013)

    I have recently migrated to Exchange 2013. Clients are still using Outlook 2010. There is an application that automatically sends an HTML form by email for the users to fill in. The form consists of radio buttons, text areas and drop down list. However,
    in Outlook 2010, the form is not rendered properly.
    When I clicked the "If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser" link, the email is opened in
    IE and the form is displayed correctly.
    I also tried opening the same email in other clients, such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail Client and in mobile phones - the form is displayed correctly. I wonder
    why it fails to do so in Outlook 2010. The user mentioned that this does not happen in Outlook 2003 and prior to migration (I used Exchange 2010 previously). I have also tried using OWA, but the form does not display correctly
    Any help?
    Note: I can't attach any images or links as it is mentioned that my account is not verified yet. I will post some screenshots when it is possible to do so

    Outlook 2007 or newer use Microsoft Word for their HTML engine.
    You can refer this page shows
    many things that do not work in different clients.I think Someone needs to re-code
    the HTML form to make it work in the current versions of Outlook. You can try formatting with text and HTML and see the results.

  • PDF not displaying correctly when opening in Firefox

    I have created a document in Powerpoint 97-03, with hyperlinks created using shapes, on a Win. 7 PC and then converted it to a PDF. It has then be uploaded onto the internet and it displays fine on a Windows PC.
    One of my colleagues has viewed it on their mac with Firefox and found that the contents of the PDF have shifted to the right so that part of the document is off of the page, though the hyperlinks have stayed where they should.
    I have installed Adobe Reader XI onto the mac in the hopes that this may resolve it but alas no luck. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this issue and whether there was any fix at all?

    Can you please post the link to the PDF in question?<br>
    Does this occur in all PDFs?
    In order to change the default reader for PDF files (to not open PDF files with Firefox's internal PDF reader), follow these steps:
    #Go to ''Tools'' > ''Options'' (or ''Firefox'' > ''Options'').
    #In the Options window, select the ''Applications'' tab.
    #In the ''Search'' field, type ''PDF''. You should find ''Portable Document Format (PDF)''.
    #On the right handside you should find an ''Action'' column. Use that to select your favorite PDF reader. In order to view PDF files in Firefox, choose ''Preview in Firefox''.
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back soon.

  • New programs not working and websites not displaying correctly

    I need a little assistance. My older G5 is running Mac OS X (10.3.x), Mac OS X 10.3.9 (7W98) - I don't have the funds to upgrade right now - and during an update to iTunes awhile back the power was accidently cut and then my mess began. ITunes would no longer open,
    I am good with PCs and can pretty much resolve anything on them, but have been absolutely stumped with this. I searched all kinds of troubleshooting and eventually decided to just erase and reinstall Panther hoping that would resolve the issue, iTunes works now, but Safari is not displaying web pages correctly (for instance Facebook is just a stack of words but other sites may look okay), and now any new program I download will not open after I install it like Firefox.
    Any ideas as to how I can resolve this mess?

    You can try do download Onyx, it is a good free Software that will repair many issues that you can have with your Mac. You are running the very last 10.3.x I suppose.

  • Gmail usernames and passwords not displaying correctly - is the issue with Firefox?

    I have 3 email accts and when I click username in Gmail those 3 would show and passwords would be remembered automatically. Now it shows these 3 and 2 others that have been used before, plus NO passwords displayed. In the past if this happened I refreshed page and it went back to the 3 accts - this is no longer happening. Could it be a firefox issue?
    Also my autofill in Gmail is no longer working and I have seen other inquiries about that. Is there any info on how to fix these???

    This is a known issue in Firefox 4 beta 12. You could wait til' the RC comes out, or you could grab one of the latest nightly builds availible here that fix this problem:
    Just a note though, nightly versions of firefox are generally less stable than betas or releases. I am waiting for the Release Candidate to come out myself. (Should be early next week)

  • Exporting to PDF with InDesign 2014, colours not displaying correctly.

    Since we have updated to InDesign 2014, we are getting a lot of comments from our customers saying and asking why the colours are different. At first we thought is was because we send out low res proofs and there could have an issue when they tried to print. However, we are now getting comments from customers when we send them print ready versions. We cannot duplicate the problem on our machines (or my Windows Phone). We then suspected that it could be the version of Acrobat the customers are using, we are asking customers for this information. We have checked our presets and they are the same as they were for previous versions.
    Has anyone else seen this behaviour and do you have any suggestions to remedy it?

    If you are using custom color for your CMYK settings make sure that you set the right profile color in your InDesign CC 2014, since InDesign CC 2014 default color settings is set to "Working CMYK - U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2". InDesign CC 2014 then exports your file to PDF using the default profile.
    In Previous InDesign CC the default values for Assign Profiles is set to Discard (use current working space) for RGB Profile and Discard (use current working space) for CMYK. But in InDesign CC 2013 if you are going to export an InDesign file into PDF, it will automatically use your Color Settings options for CMYK values. But in InDesign 2014 those settings will be ignored by InDesign because it will use the current Assigned Profile by InDesign. If you are going to check your your working space back in InDesign CC 2013 it was set to your CMYK Color Settings.
    And Finally always check you pdf setting under Export PDF settings dialog box to No Color Conversion.
    Hope this help. And I can't be sure if this will solve your problem. But at least I was trying to help.

  • Emails and RSS not displaying correctly

    Is there something wrong with my settings in Mail? or is it something to do with the way these messages are sent out.

    I just wanted to send an update to let everyone know I was able to get my issue fixed (after about an hour with the chat support) and one nof the steps was obvious while the other was not. Sticky Footer was enabled so when the browser window was enlarged vertically, it introduced the white space. Removing the checkmark from that box fixed that issue. Regarding the header giving white space, the tech support person took control of my computer because they weren't have the same issue when I sent them my file which was very odd. They did some fiddling about with the header and grouping of elements in the header and were finally able to get the white bar to disappear when viewed in Preview and on a web browser. They couldn't give me a specific reason why it did that or why what they did fixed it. So, sadly not a lot to go on for how to fix the problem other than 'fiddle around with it till it works,' which is frustrating at best.
    Thanks again for your willingness to help me out. I hope your issue gets fixed Barbara. If you haven't  already, you should chat support on your issue.

  • Mail notifications for Eudora clients not displaying correct information in message subject

    I have been using PMDF from Innosoft with Netscape Calendar Server 4.0. I
    recently upgraded from Calendar Server 3.51 to 4.0, and I am using the
    sendmail command to
    send out email notifications. When I send out email notifications, clients
    who use Eudora and who are on a Windows platform do not see the correct
    information in the Subject line of the emails. This problem does not occur
    with other email clients, including Eudora clients on Macintosh platforms.
    This problem also does not occur when I send email using the natives endmail
    The following line is an example of the Subject line that is displayed when
    a Eudora client on Windows views an email notification:<BR><P>
    Subject: Wallace (xsw),Brian SmlhbiBT
    Is there is a way to configure how Calendar Server writes the Subject lines
    for email notifications?
    Check the setting for the character set that is being used for the content
    portion of email messages. This setting is in the Calendar Server
    configuration file, which is located at<BR>
    The mimecontentcharset
    parameter under the [CWS]
    section determines what character set is used to encode the content and subject
    portion of a (MIME) email message.<BR>
    The accepted values for the mimecontentcharset
    parameter are as follows:<BR>
    The default value is ISO-8859-1
    For more information about the steps for configuring the Calendar Server,
    please see the Netscape Calendar Server 4.0: Administrator's Guide at

    Try first disabling any custom rules you may have, and see whether that makes a difference. If the problem persists, proceed as follows.
    Verify/repair the startup disk (not just permissions), as described here:
    The Repair functions of Disk Utility: what's it all about?
    After having fixed all the filesystem issues, if any, and ensuring that there’s enough space available on the startup disk (a few GB, plus the space needed to make a backup copy of the Mail folder), try this:
    1. Quit Mail if it’s running.
    2. In the Finder, go to ~/Library/Mail/. Make a backup copy of this folder, just in case something goes wrong, e.g. by dragging it to the Desktop while holding the Option (Alt) key down. This is where all your mail is locally stored.
    3. Locate Envelope Index and move it to the Trash. If you see any other “Envelope Index”-named file there, delete it as well.
    4. Move any “IMAP-”, “Mac-”, or “Exchange-” account folders to the Trash. Note that you can do this with IMAP-type accounts because they store mail on the server and Mail can easily re-create them. DON’T trash any “POP-” account folders, as that would cause all the mail stored there to be lost.
    5. Open Mail. It will tell you that your mail needs to be “imported”. Click Continue and Mail will proceed to re-create Envelope Index — Mail says it’s “importing”, but it just re-creates the index if the mailboxes are already in Mail 2.x format.
    6. As a side effect of having removed the IMAP account folders, those accounts may be in an “offline” state now. Do Mailbox > Go Online to bring them back online.
    Note: For those not familiarized with the ~/ notation, it refers to the user’s home folder. That is, ~/Library is the Library folder within the user’s home folder, i.e. /Users/username/Library.

  • Email images and signatures not displaying cross platform??

    I have noticed something odd when emailing people who are using windows. For some reason, attachments and signatures that are images (.jpg files that WILL open in a browser on the PC) or PDF's do not show up in the body of the email I send to them. Yet they are using HTML email, and emails they send to ME do have images showing up correctly in both the body of the email and the signatures on my Mac. Is there something on my end that I need to do in the formating to make this cross platform? Has anyone else run into this?
    I'm confused, I thought HTML was HTML....

    Same here... in Outlook 2007 many times the Mac email signature ends up as an HTM attachment... Any news on this odd behavior!

  • KVM and UltraDock not displaying correct resolution

    Hi All,
    I have a 2 computer settup at my work station by using KVM setup to be used on one Screen, keybord and monse.
    My desktop is connecte to the KVM along with my work Lenovo W540 (through UltraDock) to same monitor. Both comptuers are running Windows 7. Dektop is Home Premium version wile Laptiop is Enterprise.
    The issus I have are following. When I am running my Desktop i have no issues with the resolution, however when I switch to my Laptop my resolution goes down to 1280x1024 even though the Montior can handle as much as 1920x1080. But if I plug in my KVM directly to the Laptop (bypasing UltraDock). I get maximum resolution that screen can handle, however i get flicker lines across the screen. But If i plug in my monitor directly to the Laptop (No KV) I don't have any issue. The screen resolution works fine. I alos dont have probmes when I plug in screen in to UltraDock directly as well.
    I have tired everyting to get this issue resolved by I cant seem to find correct answer anywere. I tryed updting fimware from here, and that id not work. So I am out of options.
    Could someone plase help me with this issue.
    P.S. i have Intel HD Graphics 4600 as my grphics card.

    Same "fuzzy" picture on external LCD attached to MacBook Pro here (2GHz, 2GB RAM, 10.4.11). Been using a mediocre NEC LCD72vx for along time and figured that was the reason, but I tried a stellar ViewSonic VG191b that I use with my Windows desktop for layout and found the same slightly fuzzy picture, despite also noting that the resolution setting was the native one. Note, I use the external display rotated 90, but I saw no change at 0 rotation. Straight DVI on both.
    Half of the fun of having DVI out is its usefulness for layout in publishing. Powerful MBP, poor external display quality. I think some sort of fix is indicated here.
