All of my e-mail is coming through with attachment icons.
Most of these from my friends are just text messages and
they did not attach anything. I checked in Tools/Options/Read tab to
make sure that the box was unchecked next to "Read all messages in plain text"
and it was not checked.
Help/suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank You

Don

Aside from Pa Bear, you may need to uncheck " Do not allow attachments....."
under the Security tab, which I would not recommend.

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application (AVG7 Free?). It
provides no additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:

<paste>
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.
