Question mailing list problem


A few of my subscribers have reported that they are getting the pictures I send in ZIP format.
Strange as I always send in GIF or JPEG.

I send my mailings from MS Outlook and I attach the pictures to the mails.
I use TOPICA as mailing list manager.

It seems that the problem only occurs with AOL subscribers.

Has someone ever experienced that ?

I believe it has to do with the way AOL handles attachments. I remember a while back when I was doing some web design stuff, a client emailed me pictures, and he was using AOL. He just attached them as jpegs and gif's, but when I got them, they were always zipped up. You may end up having to just link to the pictures for them.

Take care..
