Incoming emails include duplicate of email as a text attachment

Q: Incoming emails include duplicate of email as a text attachment

All of a sudden, most of my emails are coming with a text attachment. When I open it, it is just a duplicate of the email itself. I haven't changed anything that I am aware of. What could be causing this and how do I stop this?

Thank you,

Preferred Solution: Incoming emails include duplicate of email as a text attachment

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'd like to know if there is a way to modify the text of an incoming email in my inbox, (I'm using an email client of my university), once read, i'd mark it as unread and I'd like to have a brand new incoming message, modified by me.
Is it possible?
Thank you

A:modify the text of an incoming email

You don't say which email client your using but with Outlook you can Edit the message and it will be updated in place. If you want to leave the original and add your modified version to the inbox I would think it would be simple enough to just forward the message to yourself and modify the text as needed before you do the send.

There are many ways to manage messages. Why are trying to do this? There may be a better alternative.

I an using THUNDERBIRD 2.0 EMAIL---
SOME Incoming messages do not show the ORIG TEXT , but I can HIGHLIGHT the blank space where the original text should be and then I see it----This is a pain

Also, when I hit the reply button, the original text is properly displayed along with the message --

I would like to be able to read the incoming message along with the original text that it refers to.
I have toyed with all the options and am unable to fix the problems.

I wonder if this applies on some other EMAIL applications -

Thunderbird is fantastic with the exception of this problem.

Hope you guys can help------Thanks, Ralph

A:Thunderbird Email-original Text Missing From Incoming Messages

Temporarily disable HTML rendering of a message with the issue. If that displays the message ok, then look at your HTML display settings to see if any of those are contributing to the issue (e.g. white text on a white background, etc).

Am using Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2003.

Sometimes, but not always (even during the same send/receive) Outlook 2003 converts incoming HTML email to plain text. This has been happening on and off for the last three weeks.

Outlook options are set to NOT convert to plain text and to use Outlook as email editor, with html for new messages. There are no add-ins or com options installed.

Like I said, this doesn't happen all the time, but does happen every time from one particular address. I've check with him and all other people sent the same email received it OK.

Am also using Avira Antivir for email virus scans.

Help would be appreciated!


A:Outlook 2003 sometimes converts incoming HTML email to plain text


I wondered whether you'd had any luck with your problem as I have exactly the same. The email that converts to plain text is always a gmail account and if I read the mail through my secure webmail account, I don't have the problem.

Did you manage to sort out the problem?

Anyway, I seem to have a settings problem in my email somewhere or it could quite possibly be on the other end. Ok, so first off, : IE 5.5
DSL connection (sympatico)

Humm lets see what else might be relevant? You tell me what you'd like to know.

So now here's the problem...I type out an email in the outlook express and send it. The receiver then gets my email and my letter is attached to the email as a word pad text file, which they then open and have to scroll in order to read one sentence.
It's very odd...I haven't done anything new, and this has never happened before. I've checked my options, compose and even did a "repair" to check for corrupt, or changed files...but nothing, everything on this end seems fine. Any ideas?

A:email changes to wordpad text file attachment

Just a thought, do you have Word Pad as your spell check editor in Outlook? Check autocorrect options in Outlook. I like to use Word as my editor in Outlook, more through and efficient. I have never used Word Pad, i change the defaut to Word. Also look in Internet Explore, tools, and then the programs tab, Word Pad is the default, but it can be changed to Word. That is a change you could make and easily change back if your not happy using word. My other thought is that the font you are using in outlook may not be read properly in Word Pad. An example i just dealt with: I wrote a letter in Word, e-mailed to a hotmail address. It opened as an attacthement but not in Word. You could not read the letter, because of the font i had used, hotmail simply does not have that font. The same problem exists in Word Pad.

have a great day

I've had this problem for years. My Windows Live Mail 2012 frequently (not always) downloads duplicates of every new email. The email protocol is POP3. Someone suggested I should use IMAP. I tried it. . . but, at least with Comcast's system, IMAP duplicates what's on the server. . . which can go back several years of emails. . . which I DO NOT want to retain. Comcast provides no option to delete emails older that X days, so when I switched to IMAP, every g.d. email I've received in the last 3 years downloaded to my Inbox. So I went back to POP3.

So why do I get duplicates?

When we send an email using Outlook 2007 through Microsoft Exchange, to someone using an Ipad the pdf attachment appears in the body of the email instead of as an attachment that can be opened separately. I need to know how to make the pdf attachment appear separately. The Ipad user receives other emails with pdf attachments as attachments not in the body of the email so it doesn't appear to be his settings. Could it be one of my settings in Exchange?

(I cross-posted on the Business Application forum as well because I'm not sure if this is an email problem or a Word/Excel problem.)

I maintain a basic database in Excel 2000 and use Word 2000 to do an email merge. There are about 130 records on the list and the emails go to my outbox in my earthlink account. The first time I did it, I merged all records at one time and everyone received the same email twice. The second time I did it, I merged about 20-30 at a time, in different batches, but it still duplicated everyone. Any suggestions on what's going on and then how I can fix it/create a work-around. (One I've half considered is importing the Excel file to Access and trying it from there...but I'm not an Access expert and I'm hoping someone has an 'easier' solution.)

PC XP Mozilla e-mail problem

Each incoming e-mail has an attachment named Part 1.2.

This began in November 2007.

Opened with Notepad and it contains an AVG No Virus found ... message.

A:Outlook - Duplicate incoming mail

do you have any rules that move mails to different folders? If you have a rule to move a mail based on which account it was sent to, and another rule to move mails based on content, and if a mail comes in that fits both, you will get a duplicate.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Most of the incoming mail messages are, for unknown reasons, going into the deleted folder rather than into the inbox. This began about two weeks ago when I upgraded to Norton 360 Premium. Maybe this has nothing to do with that, but everything was working prior to it. I am using MS Outlook 2003. I have not made any changes to my Outlook. How do I correct this annoying situation.

A:Incoming Emails

Yes, it could be a coincidence, but I would first suspect Norton. If you can't find any Norton options relative to handling incoming mail I would uninstall it, at least long enough for testing. Symantec has a very good Norton Removal Tool, and that link also gives instructions on how to make sure you have the Product key saved for a later re-installation.

I am trying to use the ‘Include Text’ link to automatically update documents from a source document when the documents are printed. This feature worked very well in Office 2003 but is not working in Office 10 Professional Plus. Unfortunately, no one in my company, including the IT department can help. Below is the test document I created and the setups currently in place. As far as I can see, everything is set correctly; but the only way the update works is by manually pressing F9. This is not satisfactory as the documents will be printed by various people who may not be aware of the possibility of an update.

A friend of mine is having an issue where he's getting emails that have additional recipients added that the sender did not include. I got the same email from the same sender, and those additional recipients were not in the email when I received it.

Someone else has also gotten a threatening email from him that he never sent. It contained very specific and personal information.

I've advised him to change his email account password and secret questions, and check all his settings for anything awry, but this clearly isn't like those common generic webmail hacks, but he's being personally targeted somehow.

Could someone offer some insight and advice please? Thanx!

I'm using a =IF formula to return a chosen text value based on the number of days away from a date (based on the current date).

EX: in cell E7 I have =IF((B2-E6)>34,"DUE CAL","FMC")

whereas: B2 is today's date and E6 is the last date of calibration for a piece of equipment

To this =IF formula I want to add another =IF formula that will return a different chosen text if a comment is placed in cell E6 instead of a date (indicating that there is something wrong with the equipment).

Since I can't know what text would be input into E6, how can I set up the =IF formula based only on the presence of text, rather than something specific?

You can configure this if you wish in the Email Scanner properties by removing the checkmark next to both options labeled "Certify mail" if you wish or use the other combination of options allowed to you there."

Open your avg test centre, double click on e-mail scanning, then click on configure, uncheck the box's marked certify mail.Click OK to get out of avg.

I have a customer who I set up a Vpop3 Enterprise mail server for some time ago.   Its been working fine and they recently updated and paid for the Pro Avast on all computers.  For some reason around the same the mail server stopped recieving any emails.  Also they have one PC that just receives everything directly into an Outlook account and thats not working either.
If you turn off the Mail shield all the emails come flooding in.  Obviously this is not ideal.  Its just possible thier email provider has changed something but they are impossible to talk to. 
I dug around on the Avast site and forum and it seems you need to go into Mail shield settings and Expert settings and turn off SSL encryption but I am a little lost at this stage and dont want to start turning things on or off until I know what the implications are.
I hope someone can perhaps offer me some advice on this.

A:Avast Pro blocking incoming emails

I see you have also started a topic here at the avast forms and have been receiving some suggestions. The last one was a link to enabling the Mail Shield SSL scanning when encountering issues after an upgrade.You also mentioned contacting Avast support and nothing...does that mean you submitted a ticket and they never answered you or did not provide any useful information?If you did not hear anything, how long ago did you submit your ticket?I'm not sure how many or if any BC members use Vpop3 Enterprise mail server with avast so you may not get many suggestions here. Same goes at the avast forums since most of their folks are also volunteers and may not have actual hands on experience. Looking around the forums I found several similar topics from last year but no one appeared to get a satisfactory answer so I suspect they don't know either.I would keep pestering avast Tech Support until you receive a satisfactory answer. In the meantime I will also poke around some more and see if I can find any further information that addresses your issue.

Hi -

I spent a while categorizing emails and setting up rules (in Outlook 2007). After each rule I created or edited, I ran the rule in the box to test it and it worked. But now, when the emails come in that should be auto-categorized from the rule, they aren't.

Subject: so and so commented on your status...

Rule: Apply this rule after the message arrives with 'your status' or 'commented on your status...' or 'status' in the subject assign it to the Social category. ​
It's not just this one, it's any category one. They all work when I test/run after creating it, but they aren't running when they come in. The rules are all enabled and there aren't any errors. I have various other rules, but none are conflicting and the category ones are at the top of the list.

Any help/suggestions would be great.

I have a user that is missing text from incoming messages. The more the mails are replied to the more text disappears or distorts. It's from several different locations. The emails seem to be coming in HTML. They often get this string of code at the beginning of the

v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);}

In the body of the message text that was typed normally will appear in a different colour, a different font, or not at all.

It doesn't matter what format -- Plain Text, Rich Text or HTML. I've copied over a .dll from a computer without issues (can't remember the .dll, read it in the groups) and we have AV software but it isn't picking anything up.

Any ideas? This is the second user this is happening with and it's happening more and more consistently.

First, I am a programming novice - so please treat me as such.

I have just launched a website. As part of my service I send a newsletter to clients. Within that newsletter are links to articles on my website.

For some clients, not behind corporate firewalls, the links work ok.

For other clients, behind bank corporate firewalls, the links seem to be dead, even though the pages are there.

Do corporate firewalls somehow change the links in a way that make them non-usable? If so, what can I do to make sure the links work?

Here's the error the clients reported:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Invalid URI in request GET /../../../../index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=177&Itemid=143 HTTP/1.1

A:Do firewalls change the embedded links on incoming emails

The quick answer is yes. Firewalls do have the ability to block just about anything they want. It also could be the email client that is disabling the links. The latter is the more likely thing going on. Both these things are done in the name security of course, so there is not much you can do as a white hat-wearing web designer that is going to circumvent the security measures put in place at these locations. The best thing you can do is type out the hyperlinks and instruct your recipents to copy and paste them into a browser.

I have made the mistake in the past of having the same person in my address book twice but their email address had one charcter transposed.

Wasn't quite sure where to post this query - it seems to cross subject matter twixt email and security.

I am currently trying out the security program Returnil which has you working in a virtual environment. How does this effect the reality of incoming email to my Windows Mail account? I have occasionally forgotten that I am working in the virtual environment and then gone and checked my mail/replied etc. However when I have gone back to Windows Mail in the 'real' world, my messages have disappeared.

What am I doing wrong or maybe could I be advised as to what is the best practise regarding program based email client when using Returnil.

Thank you in advance.

No incoming email on Thunderbird. I can send out. I have Dream Mail and it is set to leave messages on the server. I have a lot of messages stored in folders in Thunderbird and want to keep them. First the Trash Folder shows a count but the messages don't show. In addition, the program created some additional In boxes under Local programs I think. I am perplexed and have trouble adjusting to Dream Mail.

Can my Thunderbird be straightened out?

The Windows 7 system clock is correct, but incoming emails (on Outlook 7) are consistently showing a time that is 19 hours behind. (I have tested this by sending myself emails.) How do I fix this problem?

You most likely do not have the correct time zone set.
Otherwise, it could be an email server error...check
with your email provider

Does anyone know how to set up an automatic reply to all incoming emails for Windows Mail (with Vista). I will be going away for two weeks and would like to have the following automatically sent: "Please note that I will be away between January 7th and January 24th. I will respond to your email upon my return." I know it can be done as I did it last year but simply am unable to figure out how I managed to set it up. Anyone? Thanks.
