Some emails I receive have pdf, docx, or jpeg files attached. Plus they come with winmail.dat files attached. The winmail files are 6k and the pdf, etc. are 1k. When I try to open them there's nothing there. These come from a local government and go to a variety of people. I'm the only one having the problem opening the attachments.

Hi, info on the Winmail.dat file and includes any and all web programs and sites. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-winmaildat-attachment

I would think something again is stopping the pdf files.

What email client or web site are you using ?

If running any security software that scans your email then you may need to look into that program.
