| | Attachment problem - new finding (for me)!!

Attachments sent in HTML emails DON'T MAKE IT THROUGH!
I was noticing that intermittently, some emails being sent to me with attachments weren't working. I couldn't find the pattern - sometimes the .doc files would come through, sometimes not. Sometimes the .jpg files would come through, sometimes not.
I searched and searched here for a solution - nada. Everything was about attachment service books, problems with BES, etc, etc.
At any rate, after a bunch of trial and error, I finally figured out what the problem was. If I send myself an HTML-formatted email, the email body itself makes it through, but the attachment does not. If I send a plain-text formatted email, then the attachment comes through just fine.
Sorry if this is old news to some - but I thought it might be helpful to others.
P.S. This is on T-Mobile 8700g using BIS.
