[thelist] Outlook plain text IMAP messages suddenly all have attachments.

Last night as a favour to a mate, I reformatted a troublesome laptop and
installed windows, connected it to the Internet got all the right drivers
for it, and basically fiddled with it late into the night. So to speak.

I then set up Outlook Express to retrieve my IMAP account messages. All was
well so I deleted the account, and thought that was that, until I arrive at
work (using Outlook 2000) and now see that all my IMAP messages (old ones,
and new ones just arriving) that are plain text now have a text attachment
with them. HTML emails do not.

Anyone got any ideas? The email account happens to be on a cobalt RAQ4
server if that makes any difference...
