please read the documentation of your software http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA101530181033.aspxhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/138053http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278061
Michael,Thanks. OK I can set it to plain text, however the issue i am having is that my attached .doc and .csv files do not go thru. all the recipient sees is the .dat attachment. This problem seems to be intermittent.tim
setting the format to plain text is a good idea. Make sure this is a permanent setting.To rule out issues on the receiver's end, you may try another email software like Opera's built-in mail client or Mozilla Thunderbird (if you are allowed to by your system administrator).
