Problem: Outlook Express, forwarded mails with attachments from Yahoo mail.
Posted on 2004-08-14
I often receive forwarded mails with attachments (those funny pictures or video that short of things).
I have this problem from Yahoo mail senders. Usually the forwarded mails are nothing but attachment. but all senders from Yahoo mail, instead of attaching the pictures, it attach the mail header instead.
resulting multi-level of emails I have to open just to view one attachment. with the "email-in-email" effect, my desktop flooded with multiple emails. Also a simple email with a single picture attachment may only have 100k, but with the multiple forward effect, resulting the file size increase to maybe 500k.
what causes this? it it Outlook Express? or Yahoo?
does Yahoo or Microsoft know this issue? are they fixing it? at this moment, any solution to this problem?
