🎄 View our APS Support Christmas hours 2019 

With iManage DMS

“An error message appears when clicking on projects that have work items with .MSG type attachments. Sometimes the message appears when the attachment has a special character in the name, such as "/" (error messages attached), but this behaviour is inconsistent.”


There is a project attachment that contains special characters that are not supported by WM. The Following file cannot be viewed in Project Manager.

We do have TFS logged item for special characters in iManage, I have attached this email to TFS# 21889 {for HLB calls 284806/315875}

We are visioning to fix it in 2.6 release (not confirmed)

The easy work around is to delete the special characters in project attachments.

The most well know special characters are windows restricted characters – not to use in file names
