All incoming e-mail has a .txt attachment with message text

My problem seems to be the same as Rob-J.  Starting this 
morning, all incoming e-mail received into Outlook 2000 
(with SP-3 applied) now has both the regular incoming 
text, plus a .txt attachment with the exact same text in 
it.  I have made no changes to any Outlook settings or 
Windows XP settings.  Of course, some whacko keystroke 
may have occurred unbeknownst to me and done something, 
but of course I can't know that.

Now for the really interesting part.  I also have Outlook 
2000 with SP-3 applied also installed on my laptop.  It 
does NOT experience this problem!  I have compared all 
Outlook settings for e-mail on both system, and they are 
identical!  Both systems run Windows XP home edition.

I at first blamed this problem on Earthlink (and they are 
investigating, supposedly), but now I doubt it is 
Earthlink.

Any ideas, as Rob-J also said, would be greatly 
appreciated.  Rob-J, please let me know if you get any 
offline answers, and I promise to do the same for you.

Solved my own problem.  When in doubt, reboot.  That did 
it.  I had also deleted all temporary Internet files, 
cookies and files in windows/temp.  But nothing worked 
until the reboot.

Mail will not Send/Receive automatically
I have outlook set up to send/receive every minute but it suddenly stopped doing so. Anyone have ideas why? Robin Several. For starters, a one minute polling interval is just nuts. It is difficult to determine why automatic polling is failing when you do not post your mail account type, connection type and polling settings. If automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working. In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook: 1. You have created an unrealistic po...

Hi, I do not know if i am at the right spot here, or if it is evne possible, but i got the following question. My boss would like me to make sure that every outgoing mail has the same looks.

The next question is however, to put the head of our website, also above our mail. This means that every user that sends a mail, the mail will have a nice header, underneath that header, the mail is typed, and then its ended with the si...

can I snap wrap points to a text box
rather than having to add individual wrap points to the edge of a frame, which is never as accurate anyway, can they be set to 'snap' to a frame (eg the ellipse) so that they are perfectly inline, (and which would of course be a lot quicker)? Edit points will not snap. There are options for edit points, select a point, right click. If you hold down control, the cursor will turn into an x, you can delete a point with a click.

WLM Beta Junk Mail Filter
The junk mail filters has stopped filtering mail. The address shows in the list of blocked addresses but the mail is not filtered. The filter worked fine in WLM but I don't think it has worked since I loaded the Beta. Where exactly are you looking when you say the address is the same as the one in your Blocked Senders?

Change the text of a shape rather than its master
Hi, I build custom masters by mixing two general shapes, say square and circle together, and have text on both the shapes. But after I drop an instance of the master into a page, I cannot modify the text of the instance. To do so, I need to modify the text on the master, which is non-sense for me. How to change the text of a shape without modifying its master? Thanks! How are you doing this? By code or by the UI? Are you grouping the shapes? If you drag two shapes to the stencil, it will group the shapes. So instead of a square and a circle you have three shapes. A Square, Circle and the...
