    ATT attachments (Outlook 2003)

    I am receiving email from someone that has the text in two attached file e.g. ATT0005.txt and ATT0005.htm. I seem to remember that this is caused by MS Exchange being configured incorrectly. I have searched the KB with no results. Can anyone help with this?

    Are you saying that the suggested solutions do not work for you?

    Re: ATT attachments (Outlook 2003)

    The suggested solution is for Outlook 98. I am using Outlook 2003. I am checking to see what the email program the sender uses but I don't see how that would be the problem.

    Can you post the message headers (View>Options... "Internet Headers", copy and paste)? To protect confidentiality, change the users' addresses and domain names to user@domain and the IP addresses of the source and destination networks to 0.0.0.0.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by DaveA on 12-Feb-04 10:23. removed extra http)</P>I also found this MS KB article Q146263 which may give a clue, but I do not fully understand it, or how to tell the sender to correct it.

    Re: ATT attachments (Outlook 2003)

    Very simplified: it confirms that the sender's email client is not configured in a way that Exchange understands. Possibly because it is something other than MIcrosoft/Mozilla/Eudora. Do you know whether your colleague has the same problems with others; what his/her mail client is; and which version of Exchange your office is running?

    > This message was forward to me from some who also received the message with the ATTnnnn.txt and ATTnnnn.htm attachment.

    We can use the headers to the identify the mail client that sent the message. This one -

    X-Mailer: Microsoft Internet E-mail/MAPI - 8.0.0.4211

    - appears maybe to be Outlook 97. Outlook 97 couldn't handle HTML message bodies, so that could explain why the recipient got ATT files rather than a fully rendered message.

    Obviously that would not apply to you; someone further up the chain from you must have a problem.
