    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!

    Go to Message>> Paste > Paste Special > file and press OK. This will also work and attached the document instead of inserting in the body

    What if you are not able to change the "compose messages in this format" to HTML, it is defaulted to Plain Text

    For attachments sent by no-so-informed colleagues that are embedded in the body of the RTF message, how do I "Save all attachments"? The option doesn't seem to be there when I right-click on any of the attachments.

    What about Office 365? There doesn't seem to be any method of preventing inline images.
