Someone is trying to send me an image as an attchment but instead of an attachment it is coming out as the body of the email. When she sends it to my hotmail account, it comes as an attchment. Also, I just send an image attachmnet from my gmail account to my outlook, it came as an attachmnet. Any idea as to what is going on?

Greetings ssdanish !

If sender is sending in rich text format, Outlook will see it in the body of the email.  Have sender send in Plain Text (or HTML) format, then Outlook will see attachment as attachment.

Best wishes, war1
