    I'm trying to help a friend use Gmail. He raised the question about replying to an email that has an attachment. I told him that when I do so I'm shown an "Include original attachments link" as is seen in this screenshot. If I click on the link the attachment(s) will be attached. If I don't, they won't.

    However, he says he doesn't see that link when he is replying to an email with an attachment.

    So my question is, why do I see the link and he doesn't? I've poked around in Labs and in Settings, and can't find where I've chosen this link to show. How about other Gmailers here? Do you see the link when you reply to an email that has an attachment?

    Thanks,

    Dick

    Are you sure that you are both talking about the same step in the process? Might he be looking for it at the earlier step?
    I too see that as Roderunner posted above, and can't see any way of turning it of.
    Regards

    Could it be that he has 'Basic HTML' turned on, look at the bottom of the page.

    What I've realized since starting this thread is that the email he was doing his reply-testing on had inserted images, but no attachments. So of course he would not have seen the "include original attachments" link -- there were none.

    Thanks for all your responses.
