    Receiving rubbish in O2k SR-1

    Hi everyone

    The emails I receive (in Outlook 2000 SR-1) from a colleague arrives as rubbish!
    Emails from everybody else are OK.
    Emails from my colleague to everyone else is OK.
    All emails I send are OK.
    A test email from her to someone else was OK, but when it was then forwarded to me it was rubbish.

    What is going on?
    How can this be cured?

    Thanks in advance.

    Mike

    Re: Receiving rubbish in O2k SR-1

    can you define "rubbish"? wild guess is that they are being uuencoded and outlook isn't decoding, but without knowing more i can't say for sure.

    are they coming in two parts with [1/2] in the subject line?

    Hi Mary

    Here is more info about the problem (which MS Tech Support have been unable to cure):

    (It is actually a problem my partner is having and I have not seen it "in the flesh". )

    The was no "Sender": The sender's name was part of the message.
    The Subject line was OK.
    The first part of the Message Text was the whole history of the email (dates, times, etc.)
    The second part of the Message Text was the actual message itself.
    The third part of the Message Text was the attachment which was a series of (mostly) capital "A"s interspersed with other symbols. This part was extremely long.
    The fourth part of the Message Text started with the words "Next part" followed by some sort of code.

    When the email is Forwarded, the computer ran out of memory (128Mb) because, according to MS, there was no marker to indicate the end of the message.

    Microsoft have said that it is a problem with coding in the sending of the email - but can't get any further than that.

    The sender uses Outlook Express V4.72.

    I hope that helps.
