Im experiencing an issue where one of my users composes an email with Outlook 2003 then adds an attachment.  The attachment shows up in the body of the email an not the standard attachment field.  Any ideas how to solve this?

Click on Use MS WORD 2003 to edit email messages.

Apply and ok.Now you will see that attchment will go in attchment field.

andreacadia,

The format of your attachments depend on the format with which you send the message. The format type
is usually displayed at the top of the message. In the examples below, you can see that an HTML
message displays the attachment in the header while a Rich Text message displays the attachment as a
graphic in the body of the message.

To change the format of the messages that you send,
1. From your Outlook Inbox, choose Tools >> Options, then click the Mail Format tab
2. In the "Compose in this message format:" box, choose HTML
