If you have Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later, you can see a preview of your message attachments right in Outlook, instead of opening each attachment in a separate application. Attachment previews are available for many file types, such as Microsoft Office documents, photos, and PDF files. You can see each page of a multi-page document, and see a collection of photo attachments as a slide show.
- Open the message or view it in the reading pane.
- Next to the list of attachments, click Preview or Preview All.
The first attachment is displayed in the preview window.
- Use the controls at the bottom of the window to view the attachments. Options include skipping to the next attachment, playing as a slide show, and opening the preview window in full screen.
- To view just one attachment in a message where there are multiple attachments, select the attachment, and then click Preview or press SPACE .
- Attachment previews in Outlook utilize the Quick Look feature of Mac OS X. For more information about Quick Look, see Mac Help.
