    Wierd attachement behavoir

    Advertisement



    If I send myself an attachment with Outlook, the attachement is filtered out and all I get is a winmail.dat attachement on my blackberry.

    If I send the same attachement from yahoo to my blackberry email, the attachement goes through fine.

    It is a 60k word document.

    Each time, the same email received on my desktop includes the attachement no problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Allan

    Sounds like a setting in outlook is wrong. I don't have any problem sending doc attachments to my Pearl from Outlook

    Thanks you all for the replies. I went to the links and as they described the problem from both a receivers point of view and a senders I was able to try different things out.

    In the end, my Desktop outlook was setup to send all email as HTML and use microsoft word as the editor. Somewhere in the links in the thread it talked about the format used to send the email. Anyway I made my default format text, and turned off using word as my editor. Tried to send another email with an attachment to my blackberry and voila! It works.

    Just so everyone knows, as I was searching for a solution to this problem, I came accross a piece of software called: DynoPlex eFile. The software has many different versions, but its basic version which enables individuals to view Excel and Word docs on their blackberry is free. And it lets you transfer the files through the USB cable, instead of having to email it.

    Anyway, thanks again. What a great website!
