I am trying to solve a very weird issue on one laptop: It has Windows 7 x64 running and is using Windows Live Mail. One specific contact, always gets the attachments stripped/removed. For reference, the file is an JPG picture and a XLS file.
What I have tried :
Checking on the online web interface of the email service provider if the attachment is there ; and it is actually there and I can download it from the inbox.
Sending the same attachment from other email addresses to this laptops email address. Even with other contacts, attachments are downloaded. With other emails addresses, this winmail.dat is downloaded without problem.
Adding this contact into the Safe Sender List and adding the domain to the Safe Sender List.
Check the attachment type and enable Windows Live Mail to receive ANY attachment file types.
Check the Security SPAM filter settings ; they are off ! Also, check the first point again - The ISP is not blocking the attachment as it is visible and downloadable from the webmail interface.
Creating a profile on Microsoft Outlook with the laptops email account : It contains the attachment.
How can I get Windows Live Mail to download attachments for this contact ?
