Weird new attachement when replying

When some of our employees receives emails with attachement and they reply, it should only have the text body and not the attachement itself.

However, when replying to an email (only with attachement) we see a weird icon and when clicking it, we get the local settings folder ..

Please see attachement to explain what I mean :

Hi Cassavatech,

Have you tried saving the attachment to disk and looking at it with Notepad to see what it is?

Cheers!

It is set to text only and no, it is not the original mail content .. when opening it, it simply opens the folder local settings.
I need to check tomorrow when that person is back to see what the file contains ..

Sorry, was away for a while ..

We found the reason - it was a signature of someone which somehow was corrupted ..
