Environment: Server - Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 (SP4) installed on Windows 2000 Workstation - MS Outlook 2000 installed on Windows 2000 Professional. Workstation - MS Access 2000 (9.0.2720) Current MS Outlook Settings: Tools --> Options, Mail Services tab, 'send in this message format' set up to 'HTML' Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail message is checked. Tools --> Options, Mail Services tab, International Options, 'Use this encoding for outgoing messages' set to 'Western European (ISO)' Problem: We have an MS-Access 2000 application which uses MS Outlook Object Library to send emails alongwith attachments. The emails are getting sent and received in Rich Text format. As a result the attachment is displayed at the end of the email requiring the recipient to scroll down to find the attachment. Based on our findings, if an email is sent/received in Plain Text format, the attachment appears in a delineated box in MS Outlook. Therefore, we need help regarding the settings/configuration that is required in MS Outlook / MS Exchange server to ensure that the emails are always sent/received in Plain Text format. We have tried the following in order to achieve this but are unsuccessful. 1. Setting up MS OutLook Tools --> Options, Mail Services Tab --> Send in this message Format to HTML/Microsoft OutLook Rich Text/Plain text with Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail message is checked/unchecked. 2. Changing MIME Types in Exchange Server We would appreciate any inputs / help in order to resolve this problem.
