If I forward a message automatically using an incoming filter, the message loses all attachments. If I do it by selecting the message and picking "forward" from the context menu, the attachments are forwarded along with the message.

Is this by design?

Is it possible to automatically forward certain messages complete with their attachments?

(The attachments in question are generally .HTML, .pdf, or .doc)

Check your filter... in the Filters/Sorting Office for the account, highlight the filter that's not forwarding attachment. Then click the Actions tab, highlight the action (Forward) and select the Edit button. In the new box that opens called Forward Message there are three tick boxes below the address box. Ensure the middle one (Do not forward attachments) is unticked... let us know if this solves the problem for you.
Cheers!

Had not noticed the edit button... but no luck, all three tickboxes already unticked.

I'm told not being able to do this is a bug in the version I currently use(v3.80.06).
I can only get it to work if I tick "always use MIME envelope for the original message" - that seems
to forward the attachments too but is not really how I want it.

If it's a bug, make sure it's filed as such in TB! Bugchecker. It will be fixed in due course then.  :cool3:
