I would like to know why exchange 2003/7 sends some emails where the signature of the email comes through as an attachment?

if i receive an email at work using outlook 2007 i can see any users signature fine, howeve that exact same email comes through as an attachment on my windows mobile phone?

I dont get it? is it content conversion if so how do i fix it? thanks.

Sounds like you have rich text or HTML signature and the phone doesn't know how to display it.

So thats it then if the device or email program cannot display the signature (beucase this sig does have image) then it will be attached?

I believe it is a particular image type that doesn't translate..

Do emails with inline pictures display on the phone?

In general whenever something can't be displayed inline it comes as an attachment.
