Exchange 2000 by default does not care whether there are attachments.

However, the Outlook 2000 client (with the latest patches) does.

Does the message arrive but without the attachment?

If so, attempt to download mail from the server using Netscape or another non-MS mail client and see if you get the attachment. Also, you can change the security settings on the MS client to accept attachments.

If you have a 3rd-party app doing mail or virus scanning, check that it is not set to remove attachments.
