My sister has a MacBook with Snow Leopard v10.6.8 and Mail v4.6 for her email client.


I have a Windows machine running XP, SP3 and Outlook Express version 6 (OE6)

as my email client.


Whenever she sends me an email using her Mail, at my end in OE6,

her email ALWAYS shows that an attachment is with her email

indicated by the presence of a little paperclip to the left of her email

in my list of emails in OE6.  But ... when I either preview or doubleclick

her email, there is no attachment.


She swears she's not sending me an attachment.


Is there a fix to this?


Here are the message properties from my OE6:

(I substituted "xxx" for email names)

Any thoughts are much appreciated!
