How to Turn Off the Attachment Reminder in Outlook 2013


Outlook 2013 seeks to simplify the process of sending emails from your computer, and one of the ways that it attempts to do this is by helping you to minimize mistakes. We have all been in a situation where we attempt to send an email that should have an attachment, but we forgot to include it with the message. Outlook 2013 includes a feature called an Attachment Reminder that will display a pop-up window before you send a message that should contain an attachment. This happens most noticeably when you include an attachment at one point during the message creation, but you delete the attachment at some point. This reminder can be helpful, but it can also be a little tedious. Fortunately you can disable it following the instructions below.
