    I have recently switched from Outlook Express to Outlook 2000. In OE when I added an attachment it was placed in its own separate header at the top of the email. In Outlook, I can't get it to do that. It insists on placing the attachment in the body of the email. There must be a way but it is defying me.

    Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

    Thanks

    Try changing the format that the text is in.

    Hi...

    As Bob said change the "Message Format" from the default "Microsoft Outlook Riched Text" to either "Plain Text" or "HTML". This will put the attachment in a section on the bottom of the e-mail.

    1) In Outlook => Click on "Tools"
    2) Select "Options" from menu
    3) Click on "Mail Format" tab
    4) In "Message Format" section, using the drop down, change "Send in this message format" to either 'Plain Text" or "HTML"

    HTH

    Okay, problem solved, that seemed to work. I thought I tried that before and it didn't work or I couldn't use Word as my editor but everthing seems to working okay.

    Thanks a lot
