This advice is crap. Outlook inserts images inline for HTML messages as well.

IT DIDN'T WORK! I went into Options, chose Plain (and the HTML) and attachments are still ending up in the body of the messages. :(

It worked!! I found it so annoying that it automatically changes your settings once the original sender uses the rich text format. UUUUgh!
Thanks a lot!
