Attachments are hidden in tasks and appointments.

When you use an account in Outlook 2013 (using EAS) and insert an attachment into an appointment, contact, or task, the attachment is not visible in the message body.
The attachment is on the local copy of the appointment, task, or contact only; it will not sync to the server or to other computers.
There are options you can use to access the hidden attachments:
  • The hidden attachments can be saved using File, Save All Attachments menu and opened from the hard drive.
  • Click the Copy to My Calendar command to create a copy of the appointment on your default calendar and the attachments will be visible in the local calendar.

Note: The users can attach files to tasks, contacts, and appointments when does not support attachments.

Translation Error message while exporting/Importing contacts from outlook using csv Format.

You may receive a Translation Error message, telling you that a file error occurred in the translator While exporting contacts from Hotmail or website in CSV format and import into Outlook, Note: this error is not limited to CSV files exported from or Hotmail.
Translation Error:
A file error has occurred in the Comma Separated Values translator while initializing a translator to build a field map.
Outlook was unable to retrieve the data from the file "E:\Downloads\WLMContacts.csv". Verify that you have the correct file, that you have permission to open it, and that it is not open in another program.
This is the result of the exported file's Unicode encoding. When the CSV is opened in Excel, all of the comma-separated fields are shown in one cell, not one cell per field. Excel can’t detect the field separators and neither can Outlook.
Note: If you have opened the file in Excel to look at it, close it without saving.
Open the CSV file in Notepad and use File, Save as then select ANSI from the Encoding dropdown and Save using the existing file name.
Save CSV using ANSI format
Unicode format causes error
Note:to open using Notepad when Excel is set as the default, right click on the CSV file and choose Open with... from the context menu. Choose Notepad from the menu. If Notepad is not listed, select Choose default program to open the application picker dialog. Deselect the Set as default option from the Choose program dialog before selecting Notepad.
