THIS IS FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY
SCENARIO & USE: While using Outlook, many of us like to click Reply to All and wish all the attachments were included as-is. Or we wish we could click Forward and have all the recipients copied in as well. Here is a combo that helps both. Reply All with Attachment add-in!

See the attached Image that shows the 'Custom Actions' button that has 'Reply All with Attachment' button under it.

Note: You can also right-click on a selected email and find the same button under Custom Actions.

PREREQUISITES:
I have tested only on the following Vista, Windows 7 RTM, Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010. It is built on .NET 4 RTM Client Profile using VS 2010 RTM so it requires Visual Studio Tools for Office system 4.0 RTM (VSTO 4.0 Runtime).
NOTE: The plugin installs both .NET 4 Client Profile and VSTO tools during the install if not present.

INSTALL:

1. Ensure that Outlook is not running.
2. Extract the ReplyAllwithAttachment folder contents and click 'setup' to install
3. Open Outlook.
4. Open an email item from your inbox. You should see 'Custom Actions' button with 'Reply All with Attachment' button under it. Click it to see if the add-in does its job!

UNINSTALL:
1. Ensure that Outlook is not running.
2. Go to Control Panel - Add Remove / Uninstall programs. You can uninstall ReplyAllwAttach from there

Note: If you aleady have a Custom Actions button, with some add-in, this add-in just installs a button under it.
