This message was not processed because it contains a large number of MIME bodies

Greetings,

I have an email with over 3000 attachments due to a centralization effort (I'm trying to compile all of my email accounts into one central email).
When I tried to open the email with outlook, I got the message "This message was not processed because it contains a large number of MIME bodies".

I would like to save all of these attachments to my hard-drive but because the message is not processed, I cannot find a way to save the attachments.

Would someone mind pointing me to a way to save all of these attachments? Or possibly some registry editing to increase the number of MIME bodies Outlook 2010 will process?

I apologize in advance if my question is vague or not very descriptive.

Thank you very much for your time,

-Aleks M.
What type of email is setup in Outlook (POP3, IMAP, Exchange and Outlook Connector)?      
How did you insert 3000 attachments into one email?

Follow the article below:

This article is for OL 2003. You need to do the following changes in registry location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Mail

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Mail

 

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I thank you for the link. I gave it a try but it looks like the path is different for Windows 7, Outlook 2010

Specifically, I found something close to those paths, but not exactly..

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options

But there is no \Mail in those sub-folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies no longer has outlook under the Microsoft folder.

I am hesitant to add registry entries to places I "think" might be the answer.

Thanks again, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

I used my Outlook 2010 to connect to my @hotmail.com account. The Outlook wizard set up the configurations on it's own, but I noticed that the email syncs with my hotmail account as I manipulate the emails. So I assume it's an IMAP configuration.

Also, how did I get 3000 attachments? I was migrating emails from the evolution email client off of Ubuntu 11.10, and you can forward a lot of emails via attachments under a single email. I kind of jumped the gun and thoughtlessly attached 3000 of them in an attempt to take the easy way out.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my question.

I have the same question. I haven't found the registry key to increase the number of MIME parts processed for Office 2010 on Windows 7 64-bit (if one actually exists).
