         Yes, we've already done that.  Doesn't seem to fix this problem 
though.  When they send the original email, the attachment goes through 
just fine, it only seems to happen when they forward an email with an 
attachment. We've played around with the settings, and so far the only 
thing that seems to work, is to use the "include original text as an 
attachment" setting in the configuration.  But that gives a weird looking 
display to the user, as the attachment is then called text.txt, which 
includes the original email and the attachment.  Scratchin' my head over 
this one....
