I have a user on our network that occasionally will receive attachments that are converted to txt documents named att00001.txt and they number sequentially from there.
In this last scenario, a user had emailed a few excel documents to several users. Only this user received the att00001.txt attachments. Everyone else received the excel docs.
I have seen several articles indicating that the attachments placed in the body of the email can cause this issue. I have also seen comments from people who create a rule to automatically move sent items into their own inbox, causing this issue.
The problem here is that this is completely random, and does not seem to be originating from the sender, as all other copied parties are able to view the attachments correctly.
Can anyone shed any light on this subject? If it helps, the sender is using office 2011 for mac, and the recipient is on outlook 2007. Also, this recipient was the only one in the CC field, all other recipients were in the "to" field.
