    Hi !
    My old and new mail messages are "converted" into attachments. I can only
    read them when i save them as a file and open the file outside windows mail.
    it worked fine earlier what should i change so that it works again ?

  2. Check Tools | Options | Read and see if the setting to read all messages in plain text is set. If so, try unchecking that.

    It worked yesterday. But when i started today it did not work again.
    I did the following to solve it "Check Tools | Options | Read and see if the
    setting to read all messages
    in plain text is set. If so, try unchecking tha" I first cheched it and
    did apply. and after that uncecked it and apply . Now it works again. :)

    Could it be some virus program that is takeing care of me to much , I am
    using Norton 360 3.0 ?
    I can live with this but it feels strange.

  5. You found the problem: Norton. It is extremely invasive and I would recommend uninstalling it completely and getting something much less invasive, such as Microsoft security essentials. See point 3 here also: www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

    Strange.
    I for one have been using Norton AntiVirus since it first appeared back
    in the DOS days. And I still have the latest version of Norton AV (and
    only that <!>) in my system.

    I can not remember, however, to have ever had problems with mail caused
    by Norton AV.

  7. You are either extremely lucky, or else you have Norton's email scanning disabled.

    Seems to be the first alternative ;-)
    Since mailscanning was available I always had scanning of *incoming*
    mails activated abd disabled it for outgoing stuff.
