Unable to cut or copy attachment file


I am unable to cut or copy any attachment file in outlook 2003.In a new message, I attached a file (pdf,xl,doc etc) . I want to copy that file and paste to other new message. But when I right click that attachment file cut or copy option is disabled. Please help me out...........I'm using HTML format. But in other formats like rich text I'm able to send.


Not sure if the OP will see this but for anyone else who ends up here via searching... You should be able to drag and drop items between email messages in Outlook; it may be that a couple of Windows files haven't registered properly and so you can't. To try this fix:
Close Outlook, click 'Start' then click 'Run' and paste the following two lines (one line at a time, hitting ENTER after each one) into the run box.
Regsvr32 /i ole32.dll 
Regsvr32 /i shell32.dll 

(If you see an 'invalid entry point' message (or similar) after the first don't worry- it should still work!)
Open Outlook and see if you can drag and drop / copy and paste attachments.
