I am getting emails from a specific company and the attachments are not

users that received the email got the attachment. This has happened on
2 other occasions from the same company. The other users are using
Outlook. One of the other users that is using outlook is having the
same issue.

If a user here that received the attachment copies the attachment to
there disk and then creates another email and sends it to us then we
receive it.

The odds are that your firewall or you ISP is stripping the attachments from the emails for either size or security reasons. It is probably a policy administration issue Talk to your system administrator or your help desk.

This would be kind of strange since the other four users are behind the same firewall and are using the same ISP. The other user which was not receiving the attachment they fixed by updating his Office XP. So I am the only user that is still unable to get the attachments. And now the system administrator is convinced that it is an email client issue.

Okay, have you tried using Evolution, setting it not to remove the e-mails off the server, then using Thunderbird or KMail?
