Email Tranmission Problem

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Leave Me Alone, Feb 11, 2004.

  1. Hello friends,

    Im gonna get right to the point. Everytime my friend send out an email
    containing an attachment in .doc format, the recepient receives it in .dat
    format. Could you all tell my why? and most importantly, what can be done to
    stop this from happening?

    Thanks in advance,

    Try zipping the file and sending as an attachment. One of the mail
    servers is not handling the .doc file correctly. Some mail server
    antivirus software will block all .doc file because of macro virus
    problems.
