emails all have html attachments

  dewskit 10:17 16 Apr 2003

Since upgrading to IE6 I have noticed that all emails sent and received are showing an attachment, which if clicked on and opened contains the same text as the email itself.
I have my email settings to 'Plain Text' in both send and receive modes, so am rather puzzled by this.
Any ideas - or better still suggestions on how to get rid of this seeming waste of space and time due to redundant information

Try posting in the helproom.

You have answered your own question.

By setting the receive status to Plain Text, you have told your email program (presumably OE6) to not display additional information (different fonts, colours, bold, italic etc).

Rather than 'throw away' this information, your email program converts it to an html attachment.

If you want, you can click on this and view the message as it was originally sent.

Don't fret about it, it is happening by design. You have chosen the most secure method of viewing emails - there is no chance of running unwanted scripts with plain text.
