I got an email from a user using outlook 2000 with pdf file as an attachment.
I'm using outlook 2003 and don't see the attachment.
But when i forward the email to anybody i see the attachment is there.

Any reason why this is happening?

nope don't have that installed
i tested with two emails from the same person.
The email that i got the pdf attachment is in plain text format and when the
user sents it in html format i don't see the attachment until i tried to
forward his email.
But the attachment is there in the user's sent items.

I've found a link and a way to get the attachment to show up.
But what do i have to do to fix it since i can't have end users doing that
on every email they think they have an attachment on.
