    Suppresssing unwanted attachment infomation

    Hi 

    When sending mail my recipients were complaining that there were unnecessary attachments arriving with my emails, oftern *.dat files. I then realised that these are probably something to do with images from my signature which has a couple of logos in it. I have now ticked the "Don't add "attachment information" to Multipart messages" on the Sending Mail tab, and hope that this will help to suppress all attachment info surplus to requirements on outgoing mail.

     The reason I'd lived with this for so long is that on my incoming emails I've also, from time to time, received long streams of redundant info about icons and logos etc attached to incoming mails and thought that this was normal. Then an Outlook user told me you never see this bumph in Outlook. 

    So now I'm trying to find the button in Pegasus Mail that suppresses unnecessary attachment info on incoming mails. 

     Any help on keeping the attachemt info clean and to the point on both outgoing and incoming mails would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Johnny

    The only thing that comes to my mind is the new mail filter action in Attachment rules that can delete an attachment.  Creating rules that would delete only extraneous attachment content sounds challenging though.

    As for outgoing, you have found that setting.

    Send the same email with a signature to a Yahoo address and a GMail address. Yahoo shows extra text describing the attachments. GMail does not. It's the mail client application. The signature logos etc, should be seen when viewing attachment information only.

    I have taken to going into the attachment dialogue and removing everything except the attachments I mean to send.
