When I try to attach a file to email, I am presented with the open
dialog box that allows me to choose which file. Choosing my hard drive
and clicking [Open] returns an error that, "Desktop printers cannot be
opened in an application." I can choose any file or folder on the
desktop just fine, I just can't get into the hard drive because OE 5
thinks its a Desktop Printer.

First I put the shared printer icon into the trash. Second I made an
renamed alias of my hard drive on the desktop, nope. I rebuilt my
desktop and reset the PRAM. I disabled the desktop printer extensions,
nada. NDD had nothing to report.

I tried attaching files from the four locations I could find within OE
(command-E, pull down menu, Add Attachments button and the Attachments
field below the Subject line) and looked in Preferences under Compose
and verified there was nothing there under the "Click here for
attachment options" that said, "Make OE think your hard drive is a
Desktop Printer."

I eventually found the bug reporting page at Microsoft and logged my
experience. Is this a bug or did I miss something?
