Since a few weeks I have been recieving a lot of mail messages from different domain with an attachment ATTxxxxxx.txt

xxxxxx stands for a number.

The content of the attachment is normally the html version of the message body which is recieved in normal text.

I can't understand what's happening since I have never had this kind of problems on my Outlook clients which are connected to an internet published Exchange server.

mmm... let me think
My mail server system  hasn't been changed and the problem comes from such a lot of sites that it s' impossibile that they all have changed something on their mail servers.
Then I'm pretty sure that a domain, which use our same provider, has our same mail system (Exchange)

If it is all of your emails, take a look here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_20931434.html

If its just emails from one particular person/domain, check: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_20174550.html

I have seen this many times.  It is usually due to corruption in your temporary files.

What OS is this?

Delete the contents of:    Temp, Temporary Internet Files, Cookies

If this is Win2k or WinXp, they should be under:

c:\documents and settings\<your username>\local settings

If this is Win9x, then:

c:\windows

You can even run disk cleanup if this is WinXp or Win2k, but I like to do it manually.
