Email Body also comes in as a text attachment

Hi,

When I recieve an email I get the text in the email body, which is normal, but I also get a text attachment which has the email body in it.

Can anyone help me figure this one out?

Thanks
Luis

Hi Luis
This is normal, if you are sending HTML mail - it will always include a copy of you text as a text-mail, because not all programs can process html-mails :)

This is the first time its happening and I had my account for the past 4 years. I haven't changed any of my settings.
Is there any way I can prevent this.

Thanks,
Luis

Does the attached text file have a specific name? Are you using Outlook?  Version?

Are you sending HTML mails? What is attached - is it a text-copy of your mail (i.e. HTML + text - in attachment)? Which email program are you using? I can take a look if you send me a copy to softplus [at] gmail.com :)

Email data must be encoded in plain text before the message is sent, and it must be decoded to its original format on the receiving end.  So softplus has a point as he mentioned in the first comment.  

Even though you may not have made changes locally to your Outlook settings, maybe changes took place at server level?  Are you the only one receiving these attachments or are other co-workers experiencing the same thing?

Sorry I couldn't be or more help, but I'm glad you found a way to get things working as they should.  I guess an upgrade never hurts!  Good luck.

Do you think it was an Outlook-Problem or a setting? (just wondering...)
