    Outlook converting some messages into attachments

    I am subscribed to several mailing lists, handled by the Mailman software. All work fine except for one. It is not classified, but has proprietary information, and they insert warning text before and after the actually message. Something like:

    DON'T TALK ABOUT THIS

    Blah Blah Blah

    NO REALLY, DON'T TALK ABOUT THIS.

    So the message body consists of three things pasted together.

    It comes to a Gmail account, and looks fine on the web interface, or on Thunderbird. However, in Outlook 2013 (WIN7 32 bit Pro OS) I get the message as a blank body, with the three parts as attachments. They have names like "untitled attachment 00326.txt" and "untitled attachment 00333.htm" I normally have Outlook set up to open all messages in plain text, but turning that off has no effect.

    Most of the other subscribers use Linux, or MacOS, and so far as I can find I am the only Outlook user. As you can guess, there isn't a lot of interest or sympathy. ;( Any idea what is going on, or even what I should be looking for? So far, Google has not been my friend.

    Might check with one of the Mac OS X users, could be using a version/package of Microsoft Office 2011 which includes Outlook. Office 2008 for Mac had Entourage for the E-Mail Client.

    Berton,

    There are two such users. They report no similar problem, and suggest that I get a Mac.
