    Default Hotmail reply makes attachment

    Hi,

    I've been using a new hotmail account and when I reply to email, the original email text goes into an attachment instead of being part of the email that i'm sending.

    My old Hotmail account doesn't do that. I checked the settings but still can't fix this problem.

    If someone knows how to make my hotmail work like other email please show me what I need to do.

    Thank you

    are you using http://www.hotmail.com to view and answer e-mail or are you using a program?

    I don't see any option in the email to disable the problem you're having, nor is it an option to set it up that way. I do see options to change the way reply's are made but none of them say anything about adding replies as attachments. YOu're not using a program to read your email are you?

    Thanks for the reply PartieHonteuse.

    I am using hotmail using http://www.hotmail.com and no other program.

    The strange thing is that I have 2 hotmail accounts one I've been using for about 5 yrs and that one doesn't have the problem. The other one, I created about 6 mos ago and it takes the email that I'm replying to and sends it as an attachment. This is annoying because I can't see the original email with out opening it again in another window. And the person recieving my email has to open the attachment to see the original email.

    I'm trying to switch over to yahoo, but I still recieve a lot of email to my hotmail account.
