    Well, I needed a REALLY simple word processing attachment to be in an email. I wanted the recip. to open it as an ATTACHMENT, edit it, save it, and resend it. So, I used Notepad... I guess since it is simple text, my email program (Yahoo!) just put it as inline text. I know I could use Word and it'd attach. I'm just curious if all email programs convert all non HTML text only to body text when outgoing? Can I use Wordpad as an attacment?? Thanks.

    Try sending it in rtf format - chances are the mail program won't switch it then. And wordpad will be the default choice unless they have word
