I'm using Outlook Express 5 - and today something odd has started happening - a few of the emails I've received have been blank, with a .txt attachment, which is also blank when you open it.

The emails all have proper subjects and they are from people I know.

Any ideas what is going on? The txt attachments are called things like ATT00917.txt and ATT00945.txt

Don't know if anyone knows the answer to that one since I asked it before and researched the I-net for answers also.
Here is the thread I started.

Maybe together we can find an answer or common thread to this .att file extension. Could you contact the sendors and find out what email program they are using and see if they are using
rich text format or plain text.
Thanks Dave

Edit: Opps Nicky I see yours are attxxxx.txt not .att. Hate having dyslexia. Anyway try saving the files and opening them using notepad but run a virus check first.
