When I attach a shortcut to a public folder item(word doc) as an attachment to 
an email, many users cannot open the attachement but just click on the shortcut 
and nothing happens.
If i attach the whole thing, they can open it.
Also, this is rather sporadic in that some clients can open it and some can't.

they all have appropriate rights to the folder. 
is this some OLE issue on the client? 
by what mechanism does this occur? 

Is this something that has been set somewhere on the client to turn it off?


All my clients are win2k/outlook 2k.


Thanks alot
