  Hi all,

  I posted this message once before but maybe it will catch the attention of
someone with new information?

  About a two ago we added an Exchange 2003 server to our organization with
plans to move our current users from our Exchange 2000
  server.  All the prerequisites for adding this second server (including
the tests recommended before install) were met and the installation went
well.  As is the case with most new implementations, I was the guinnea pig
and moved my mailbox over to the new server (2003) and I continued to
receive emails as normal.

  I was informed recently that when I send an email with an attachment or a
stationery background to a user for which their mailbox still resides on the
Exchange 2000 server, the email appears with a winmail.dat file in the
Attachments section and the body of the message is
  missing.  When a user on the E2K server sends me emails with attachments
or backgrounds, I receive them fine.

  Any ideas or solutions?
