Cannot open email attachements sent with Netscape

By javpub ·
Several recipients of emails sent with Netscape Mail client are not able to open the attachments. The attachments are seen as text in the message body.

However, the same recipients don't have any problem for opening the same attachments sent with Opera mail client.

What is the difference in attachments sent by Opera and Netscape?

This has been tested by sending mail from different computers.

if they are seeing them in the messages, then it was sent inline and not as an attachment. this is a netscape configuration option.
this is a default for plain text attachments.

The problem is that the same netscape client, with same configuration, is being used to send the attachment to different recipients. Some recipients will be able to open the attachment, others aren't able to do it.
