Images in Email are getting scrambled

When a user receives a pdf file that is sent with the pdf as the actual body of the email, it is received as an attachment.  This only happens to certain users.  I , for example, receive the document as it was sent, with the pdf embedded as a picture, not as an attachment.  Any ideas why this would happen, and how to fix it?  It also seems to happen

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Your question got cut off, but please check the versions for the different clients, and the mime/ RTf option in the person doc

I hope this helps !
In R6 in the person doc see

Format preference for incoming mail:
mgalloway23Author Commented:
incoming mail is set to keep senders format
Fundamentals of JavaScript

Is this for everyone or just the person with the problems. Compare it for the ones who work, vs. the ones with the problems.

ALso the CLient versions need to be checked. Are they all the same ?

mgalloway23Author Commented:
client versions are the same
the people with the problems are no different than anyone else
this is a clustered environment, the mail is going from a person on one server to a different server.
however, if the message is sent to me , it is fine, and I am on the same server as the person who is having the issue
Are all addresses on the mail - Notes format,. or are some SMTP format ?

mgalloway23Author Commented:
they are all notes formats
What are the default browsers set to in Notes in the Location Doc ?

mgalloway23Author Commented:
Internet Explorer
Are there any PDF related programs , viewers or Add ins that may be different for some of the users ?

I hope this helps !
mgalloway23Author Commented:
Everythings the same.  Adobe v6
Notes 6.5.5
same type of machine with windows xp
no reason why it should be doing it in my mind
im stumped
Could it be a setting in Adobe V 6 ?

mgalloway23Author Commented:
seems that when the mail is transfered between servers, using SMTP, its stripping out the embedded images (pdf as well as gif jpgs etc) and making them attachments
Then don't Use SMTP to transfer between Notes Servers use the Notes Protocol and everything should be left intact.
