So, if I am reading this correctly

the attachment gets through and the email body does not???

Never heard of that one, what an interesting problem to run across.
At first I was going to say the attachment was stripped for security reasons, but the text instead?
Try this. Go to tools -- options -- mail format.
In the field "Compose in this message format" change the option (rich text, html, or text). Just change from html or rich text to text only, or vice versa. Just change and apply a new setting. Does it still happen?

If so, check security settings (turn off encryption if on)

Turn off signature file

Does it still do it?

Please post back, interesting problem.

Oh, if Word is your email editor, turn it off as well.

Did you try the suggestions here?

I think that we are looking for feedback on if any of these suggestions worked.

Thanks to all who have posted suggestions but none have worked. I have now eliminated a number of other points and find that it only when I email from within the file/send option in excel that my problem occurs. If I attach the spreadsheet to the email it does get through.
