All received eMails showing with attachments

Hi all,

One of my clients has reported a problem that's got me stumped. She's reporting that almost every eMail she receives has *.TXT attachment. She was "brave enough" to open one of these and discovered that it simply contained (a copy of?) the email text.

The situation may have arisen after Hubby "did some fiddling around"

As far as I know the Client is Outlook 2000 (could be a version out either way).

She's fastidious about Critical Updates and Virus Scanners - I seriously doubt it would be due to a virus or anything malicious.

Anyone got any ideas?

Many thanks!

one thing you may want to check is:

Tools --> Options --> Preferences Tab --> Email Options.

There is a section called "On replies and forwards"

The two dropdowns in that section both have the option of: "Attach original message".  I understand that (s)he is receiving, not sending the attachments, but looking in this area may help.  (also could be that others have that setting on and it has nothing to do with your user).

You're welcome :) - it didn't quite solve it, but at least it pointed me to somewhere where I could confirm it was a known problem, and had also gone away all by itself!

Cheers,
