I can't figure it out.  Sometimes when I send an attachment it goes in the body of the email, other times it goes in a section on the header that says "attachments" What determines where it goes?

I have tried all kinds of things.  Using plain text, rich text, and html but nothing seems to make a difference.  Sometimes when I am replying to an emial it goes in the attachment place orther times it doesn't.

What version of Outlook?  And does it only happen when you are replying? In Outlook 2000 attachments are not shown in the body of a message for Plain Text or HTML, but in a little bar/area under the Subject line.  For messages in Rich Text, they still appear in the message body.

It doesn't matter what your default mail format is.  If the sender used plain text or HTML, your attachment in the reply goes in the header.

Many thanks.  It was when I send and now I see that if I change the default to HTML they go in the bar under the subject line.  The default I was using was Rich Text.  Sometimes these little things drive me crazy.

Glad to help.  It took me some getting used to.

For anyone else viewing this, I meant to say  "In Outlook 2002 attachments are not shown in the body of a message for Plain Text or HTML".
