Q: In Thunderbird 2.0, when I forward a message with an attachment of any sort the MIT mail servers bounce it back as an executable. How can I stop this from happening?
By default, Thunderbird 2.0 will forward messages as an attachment instead of inline in the message. The attachment type it forwards is blocked as an executable file on the MIT mail servers. To prevent this from happening, you can try to do the following:
Navigate to Thunderbird > Go to Tools > Options > Composing > Change Forward Message from As Attachment to Inline
Thunderbird > Preferences > Composition > General > Change Forward Message from As Attachment to Inline
