Outlook Stripping Attachments But OWA Sees IT - 4.Jun.2009 9:32:56 PM

Hi, I have an Exchange 2007 with SP1 and the latest hotfixes installed.  I am running Outlook 2003/Outlook 2007 and OWA.  I have an issue where one particular domain emails me an attachment.  If I view the attachment in Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007, the attachment is not viewable, it just has <attachment name.pdf> in the email text.  However if I open it in Outlook Web Access I can view and see the attachment.  Additionally if I forward the attachment from Outlook 2003/2007 to an external email address, yahoo.com, hotmail.com or gmail.com, I can see the attachment when it gets to those domains.  I'm not doing any attachment stripping, otherwise it would be pulled off in OWA and we wouldn't get it in gmail, yahoo, hotmail.  We tried changing the organization setting and forcing Rich Text to be disabled but that had no real effect.   We have several other clients who have Exchange 2007 and they receive the attachment with no problems. 

If this is more an Outlook display problem then I may not be in the right forum site but I figured it is transporting through and we may have some settings that could affect this.  Has anybody seen this behavior? 

Closest thing I have found is this:

We found the problem.  This related to inline attachments.  With Exchange 2007 SP1 Rollup fix 5 it is fixed, however you may need to edit the edgetransport.exe.config file to add Inline Attachments.  The following code added to the file:  <add key="TreatInlineDispositionAsAttachment" value="true" />

Please see this technote from Microsoft:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954684/EN-US

"You cannot use an Outlook 2007 client to display or download an attachment when you access a message that includes an inline attachment from Exchange Server 2007"
