I still can't send attachments from my outlook 07 (plain text body text goes fine). I have tried the attachment with and without plain body text. They all get bounced with the attachments error message. I can however send the same file via gmail without problems (and no body text was required). Why?...

But I can't even get it to work with body text! (and yes, I have the fax number formatted and the password in the subject line)
