Sorry it took so long. I was offline a little longer than I anticipated today
However, the results are in.
I sent emails with all 3 of the files you provided and sent them as attachements
to one of my gmail, yahoo and MSN email accounts, respectively.
I then opened and tested all 3 emails by downloading and opening each of the 3 attachments on my Toshiba laptop, with Windows Vista operating system.
Out of 3 email accounts and 3 each of your files (9 total files) only 1 failed and that was initially, the Word document (.doc) which I attempted to download via my yahoo account.
But here's the clincher. The document came up in gibberish only
because after it was downloaded, Vista attempted to open the file with Notepad
Notepad in Vista or XP does not work well with docs from the Microsoft Office for Mac Word application. So I simply downloaded the document again in the Firefox downloads window (Main web browser used) and made sure it would be opened by my Microsoft Word 2003 program. The file then opened like a charm!
After that, the document opened from the other emails with no further issues.
What this allow me to determine, is that just possibly, some of the recipients who are receiving your emails + attachments on their PCs, may not be opening these respective files with the correct programs.
If you want to test this theory with one of your family, friends or colleagues who have a PC, that is definitely an option to try. But the proof is in the pudding.
The link below, will take you back to the Tech share file link I originally provided you, but this time, as proof I was using a PC, I took screenshots of each of the files you sent me with Windows Vista desktop and its system tray (at bottom of the screen) in the background as proof. I have also deleted all of the files you have sent for respect of your data being used for testing purposes only.Results of Mac to PC Email Test

So there you have it Marion. I hope this has helped, I thank you for trusting me and being patient with me so I could work on this "little project" for you.
If you have further questions on this issue, please feel free to reply back to post as you have. Thanks!
