This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer: Microsoft Word Previewer Outlook 2016

Trying to preview word attachments in Outlook 2016 and getting the following error message?

“This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer: Microsoft Word previewer ”

 

I was too and here’s how I fixed it for me.

1. Open word and click on File.

2. Click Options from the menu

3. Click Trust Center then Trust Center Settings.

4. Untick ‘Enable Protected View for Outlook attachments’

5. Log out and log back in (This wont work until you do this!)
