    Automatic zip compression of file attachments (2002/XP)

    For some unknown reason any file that I attach to an email in Outlook 2002 is being automatically compressed in zip format. For example if I attach image.jpg, it gets converted to image.jpg.zip and then sent out.
    Is there any way I can stop this from happening, and does nayone know what the cause may be?

    Check <!post=Post 66942,66942>Post 66942<!/post> - does that look a likely reason?

    You REALLY are good... I searched all over for an answer to this problem, asked every guru around, sraeched the MS knowledge base (it's actually not their fault) but no answer. Woody comes through again. Thanks.
