Processing e-mail attachments properly

I still don't know which one though.

I recently sent a big document by email. The recipient, replied with the acknowledgement. Apparently, his email client replies with the attachment too. When I got the mail, it promptly filled up my mailbox.

I would have thought "reply" shouldn’t add attachment by default. Attachment should be retained only when you forward the mail. Outlook 2000, Opera and Mozilla Thunderbird handles this properly. Apparently, there are not so sensible software is out there :-)

    For everything that goes wrong in this world, there are three "things" you can blame - God, software and human.
