LOTUS Notes Domino 7 file attachments being received as WIN.DAT

By RMarts ·
I have users with the issue of attaching a file to LOTUS Notes Domino 7 that are sent out as PDF files however when received it comes over as a WIN.DAT file and not a PDF file.

Now it does not happen all of the time meaning the PDF file is attached and goes out as a PDF and received as PDF file.

Any idea of why this is happening?

Help is appreciated,

Rick M.

...you'll see this when it is an Outlook--->Notes message exchange, due to the mail formatting. A couple articles on this are here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290809
http://office-outlook.com/outlook-forum/index.php/m/84778/

I'm assuming these are Notes-->Notes issues you're experiencing. I'd start with the obvious: make sure everyone is on the same exact version, and are using the same exact settings.

Make sure everyone is using similar formats for the messages, specifically; since that is what the Outlook specific posts mention...and it could apply to Notes, as well.

Hope this helps!
