General discussion


I am using outlook for my email.I have several people that forward emails to me, but for me to read the original message when I click it it opens a new window and i have click on it and that opens a new window before I can read the message. If it was forwarded three or four times, that's how many new windows it takes. Is that an option I control? I am using XP and office 2000 sr1

Very uncommon. In fact, normal e-mail clients just put the message they forward in the body of the mail, so it's just part of the message, not an attachment. Those 'several' people must use a quite strange e-mail program or do something wrong.

To check the validity of what I wrote above, you can do 2 things:
1. Forward a simple message to yourself and see how it looks.
2. Recieve such a strange message not in Outlook, but in another email-program (like Thunderbird) or in webbased environment (like gmail or hotmail, or even the webbased version of your current e-mail provider if it has such).

It's up to you to prove it's an issue with your Outlook and not with the sender of the message.

I get the same thing . . .

in Outlook Express. But only from certain senders, they don't know how to properly forward an email, it comes with attachments that are more emails.

It's the sender. I usually find that they are using a web based mail client.
