Email Attachments Don't Work for Web Mail with Chrome

The latest update to the Google Chrome web browser contains a bug that prevents you from attaching a file to an email when using Amherst Web Mail, a.k.a. Outlook Web App (OWA). In the meantime, if you need to send an email with an attachment, you'll need to use an alternate web browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. We tested and attachments work fine with those three browsers, just currently not with Chrome.

Every year before the fall semester the IT department requires that all devices (computers, smartphones, game consoles, tablets, etc.) that connect directly to the Amherst network register on the network. Any device not registered will be unable to access resources on the Amherst network or the Internet. The exceptions are computers that connect via Ethernet (wired) ports behind the administrative firewall, and IT-managed computers in public spaces, classrooms, and labs; these do not have to be registered.
