Turn off send without attachments warning message in Outlook

This post provides information on the steps required to turn off the send without attachments warning message in Outlook or Hotmail Account. Hotmail displays the following automatic warning message when a user refers to attachment in the email but does not attach any thing.


This is quite useful feature so that you will never forget to add the required attachment before sending an email. But if you do not want this warning message always then you can turn off this warning message by simply marking the checkbox with label as “Don’t show this message again“. You can also disable this feature by using the option available as part of More Mail Settings.
