  1. Repost of a message I made in another thread: ------------------------ I may have solved the mystery.... it *MAY* have to do with code changes that made Spamcop more Mozilla friendly -- and as a result of the patch it doesn't like Internet Explorer. I downloaded Firefox (which I've tried and I don't care for) and installed it. With Firefox installed, I could then send as an attachment all kinds of docs. But it doesn't work with my IE. Now... this is a new computer, I do know how to install software, and I haven't monked with IE other than adding Google toolbar. Using (arrrgh) Firefox worked for me. I *do NOT* like it as a solution, but it does make my Spamcop account work again. I'd be happier if it worked under my IE. ------------------------------------------ For anyone reading this and having problems, try using Firefox. If it works for you under FF but not under IE, then we can confirm the issue (I'm pretty sure this is what the problem is, and it probably has to do with a very specific version of IE. I'm using "6.0.2900.2180" I haven't checked with the Microsoft site to see what patches are out there, but the problem existed under my old computer (where I patched IE and on this new one, and with at least one other computer.

For any of you having problems, try the latest Firefox... see if that resolves it.
  3. Now you've got me wondering if it's a browser issue. I'm using IE 6.0 I have only one Spamcop address. The file falls off irrespective of whether or not I CC myself or BCC (I've done both. No. When I check "sent mail" it shows the message goes out, completely attachment free. Everything... and no pattern. I have been able to send XLS files as of this past spring, but JPG, DOC, etc, etc don't attach. Windows XP, IE6, and I don't put a lot of "stuff" on the machine. I do run virus checkers and Ad-aware. Yes, and thank you for asking. Same issue. Always fails now. I'll look at some.
  4. I am having the exact same issues as Rick. And I ran the exact same tests, too. I'm not sending exe files or com files, and my system is virus free. I have tried it on computers here at home and will also try it at school. It's terribly frustrating.
  5. Yes, as I said, I have done this before successfully. After I clicked on the final "attach" button (at the bottom of the screen), the file showed at its correct size (52,000 K long, so it's not like an overload of the email). It showed a successful attachment at the top. I click "send" and it sends the message but no attachment.
  6. Add me to the list of "Egads! It's not working!" folks. I'm a little antsy about this because I was expecting some email that I have to deal with ASAP.
  7. For many years I was able to successfully send attachments through my email account. This stopped working about a year ago. I checked the boards and saw an announcement that it had been repaired -- but I still haven't been able to send documents, etc, via attachment. I've done it for several years on spamcop, so it's not a lack of understanding here. I'm in grad school now, and it's rather important that I be able to send attachments. Has the basic procedure changed? Can anyone suggest something?
