Whenever I send an e-mail from to someone with Outlook, they can't read any text that is placed beneath an inline attachment.

When I send an e-mail to myself from any text that is placed beneath an inline attachment is attached as text-files.

This is very annoying, does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Under Edit > Attachments, check Always send Windows-friend attachments.

That way, the text beneath the attachment won't be cut off.

Alternatively, you can do that on a per-message basis in the attachment file selector window, like so:

However, there's also an option to Always Insert Attachments Beneath Message. I'll just check that one for now. – timkl Dec 7 '11 at 12:40
