Dear all,

Sorry for this voot thread, but in these list are so many mail experts 
that maybe able to help me.
I'm using lotus domino server as mail server, where clients using either 
lotus notes client and outlook 2003.
In outlook, user able to attach another emails as attachment. Is it ok 
when they sent the emails to another outlook users.
the problem is, when they sent the email to notes users, somehow the 
lotus notes client (or domino server) convert the email attachment as 
the body part. So with a glance, the notes user will not know that the 
email actually attached.
I already post this question into lotus domino forum, but there is no 
answer yet.

Is this email attachment in outlook actually eml file?
Because when I tried to forward the email to my gmail account, it will 
show as 'noname'.

The plan is, I'll be using mailscanner as my hub server, where all 
emails will be relayed, even for local one, primarily for virus checking.
Can mailscanner/sendmail detect this kind of attachment, and convert or 
rename it as eml file? Lotus notes will not try to convert the eml file.

I'm using MailScanner 4.65.3 with Sendmail 8.13.8-2.el5.

Thanks in Advance.
