Default Hyperlink an attachment in Outlook

Is there a way to insert a hyperlink to an attached file in an outlook
email? Say for example, we have a PDF file with information we want a client
to see. However, we would like them to be able to open it while reading the
email instead of saving the PDF file and opening it manually.

Thanks,
Greg

I'm not sure who a hyperlink will avoid the need to open the pdf (it can be
opened from the preview pane) - if you want it to display in the message
body as part of the message, no, you can't do that.

I believe what he wants is the ability to click on a piece of text (in this
case the company name) in the message and have the PDF file come up
automatically. Instead of the recipient finding the attachment and manually
opening it. I guess the only other way to view it would be to send the
reader to
our website instead.

Thank you Diane.

ok - to do that you put the pdf on a webserver the recipient has access to
and include a link to it, just like you would on a web page. It's possible
to include the pdf in the message and link to it using a CID reference but
the attachment should be under the message subject so it won't be hard to
find as an attachment either.
