Email attachment problems

by Rockey427 / January 13, 2005 12:35 AM PST

I'm having a problem with email I'm sending out. Whenever I send a message the recipient gets two messages. First is a one line garbled message. The second is the message with the first line or two garbled. Any assistance will be appreciated.

Try this:

To make files you attach to all outgoing messages "Windows-friendly," choose Edit > Attachments > Always Send Windows Friendly Attachments. To attach a Windows-friendly file to a single message, click Send Windows Friendly Attachments in the Attach dialog for that message.To make files you attach to all outgoing messages "Windows-friendly," choose Edit > Attachments > Always Send Windows Friendly Attachments. To attach a Windows-friendly file to a single message, click Send Windows Friendly Attachments in the Attach dialog for that message.

If you send attachments to Mac users with the "Windows-friendly" option selected, your attachment may be unusable or may be missing information (such as the preview icon for the file).
Use filename extensions, such as .doc, in the names of files you send to Windows recipients. This way the files can be read by a Windows application.

It's worth a try
