I am using Win2k, Outlook Express 6 & ZoneAlarm (free), all of them fully up to date.
Sometime in the past week or so, something has changed so that all E:Mail attachments that arrive in my INBOX have had all spaces removed from their name !!!
For instance, if I am sent an E:Mail entitled "This is a test" and it is sent with an attachment called "This is a test.txt" (or .PDF so it's nothing to do with the file type) when it arrives in my INBOX the E:Mail subject line is OK, but the attachment is now called "Thisisatest.txt" !!!
Well I don't think I've updated anything, but Windows Update tends to run itself, so maybe it's something to do with that !!!
According to my Windows Update Installation History, I applied "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB867801)" on 31st July, and the lasr time I can definitely say I had an E:Mail attachment that has NOT been renamed is before this !!!
Well my friend in Scotland says that the last time he received an attachment with spaces in it was on July 30th ... he also has this same update applied on July 31st ... this looks very suspicious to me !!!
Is there some way PC Advisor can follow up on this for us ? What can we do about it ?!?!
As I've already said, I'm using Outlook Express 6. When I receive an E:Mail with an attachment, click on the paperclip icon & choose "Save Attachments", I can choose where to Save the file(s) to, but do not have an option to Rename them at this point, I have to remember to physically hunt them down & rename them as I require.
Does anybody have, or know of, a Utility that will give me the option of rename the Attachment as I save it ?!?!
