When I email customer statements, some do not attach to the email. They all used to but some don't now. I have only checked the inactive box. Any ideas on why?

They used to all attach.  Two months ago 2 did not.  Last month 3 did not and this month 6 did not.  I have not changed any email addresses and the only box I have checked is to not send them to inactive customers.  These are all active.  


Hi there, shcommish,

I’m here to ensure that you’re able to email all your customer statements in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac.

Please back up your company files before we start troubleshooting the issue since some steps are irreversible.

Let’s check first that your QBDT for Mac is up to date. To update it, let’s perform the steps below:

  1. Go to the QuickBooks Desktop menu.
  2. Select Check for QuickBooks Updates.
  3. If a newer version of QBDT is available, click Install Update.
  4. If prompted, click Install and Relaunch.
  5. When the update is complete, QBDT for Mac will automatically open.

Please visit this article to learn more about updating QuickBooks Mac Desktop.

After that, let’s open a sample company file to test if it works. Here’s how to open it:

  1. Open QuickBooks.
  2. Select Open a sample file.

If the sample file works, you may need to uninstall QBDT for Mac, here’s how:

  1. Close QuickBooks.
  2. While on your desktop, from the Finder menu, select Go.
  3. Choose Applications.
  4. Select the QuickBooks icon and drag/move it to the Trash.

Please check out the Install and set up QuickBooks Mac Desktop article to reinstall the program.

Once done, let’s try emailing your customer statements to see if all attachments are sent.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
