Unneeded .txt attachments in Outlook 2002


S

Steve

Recently, for no apparent reason, my e-mails come in as
usual, with one exception. They all come with a .txt file
as an attachment. When the .txt file is opened, a notepad
window opens displaying all the same exact contents as in
the body of the e-mail, only in the attachment, everything
is plain text. This never happened before and I cannot
find any reference to this problem. How can I block these
redundant .txt attachments????? Thank you for your
knowledge! -Steve

Have you restarted Outlook and/or rebooted your machine lately?

Wow. Are you psychic? If you don't mind, care to offer
just a few words as to why that was the apparent cause, and
how often it is necessary to reboot for this purpose?
Thanks very much!!!!!!!!

Nope, not psychic :) This is just a problem that is posted in these
newsgroups from time to time, and restarting Outlook and/or rebooting the
machine seems to solve the problem, at least temporarily. I wish I could
tell you how long you can leave Outlook running before it will happen again,
but it doesn't seem to have a set pattern, and we don't know why the
attachment issue occurs in the first place. You might want to try
restarting Outlook more frequently than you have been, just as a start, to
see if that's good enough for prevention.
