    Hi,

    Someone sent me an email with jpg attachments, let's say pic1.jpg, size 1MB. When I received it, I have 2 jpgs - pic1.jpg 1MB (of course), and another one with the same name but much smaller size pic1.jpg, 50KB. Sender told me that he only sent 1 jpg file.

    Does anyone know why? and is there anything I can do to stop the smaller one come?

    Thanks.

    The sender probably has a setting in their end to "break apart" attachments over s certain size (possibly 1 MB by the sound of it). So the file gets sent as multiples of that size, plus whats left over (20 kB in your case).

    When any attachment is emailed, the file size is quite a lot larger in transit due to the transport method and HTML encoding (email systems were never originally designed for attachments so it is quite inefficient at doing it)

    The sender needs to check out their settings to stop the splitting. The settings will be wholly dependent on what email client they use.

    Kiwiguy, thank you for your help. (y)
    The smaller jpg is a complete pic, doesn't seem to be a left over of the bigger jpg. Plus the bigger jpg is a complete pic as well.
    Anyway, I no longer have this problem, and I don't know how it was fixed... :confused:
