Hi there.

 

Wondering if any of the clever people on here can help me?

 

My question is how does computer software convert files from one format to another and why?

In particular a word document (2003 .doc version) to a message format?

 

And is it possible to unknowingly attach a document to an e-mail?

 

I would be grateful for any info or links that would help with this.

 

Thanks.

Well I have been doing endless Google searches in an attempt to establish what happened.

 
I discovered this article yesterday and it does suggest there are some inherent security issues with .msg files and their use.
 
 
I should also point out that my employers use Windows Explorer and I believe this application was open when I was getting the figures from the Excel spreadsheet.  Could all of these factors and my incoherence with the software be the reason why the personal notes I sent from home to work were attached to an e-mail by mistake?
 
Thanks.

Please explain what occurred in the e-mail.

 

What is the make and model of this computer?

Hi dc3.

 

Thanks for posting.

 

I think I may have had an answer on the issues now.  It would appear rather foolishly I copied the e-mail I sent from home and then managed to paste it twice from the office clipboard when I was supposed to paste figures from excel.  A simple mistake.

 

Cheers.
