I have noticed lately in my windows mail that emails I send and receive have attachments of conversations I am having with the corresponders. I use stationary for my new messages but it never did this before.

How can I get rid of this feature?

By default, when you reply to an e-mail message, the original message text is included in the message body. To turn off this feature so that none of the original message is included, click "Tools" > "Options" > "Preferences" tab > "E-Mail Options". In the "On replies and forwards" area, click the "When replying to a message" box and select "Do not include original message".

Appreciate the response but I cant see/dont have a "preferences" tab? or were you in Internet Explorer as the attachment had something to do with it as it had an explorer "E" at the top.

Change both of the "Include original message text"'s to "Do not include original message".

Its Windows Mail - not Outlook.

Besides, I dont think that will solve it. That function relates to the message flow within the email. The thing I am experiencing is the emails have an attachment with a transcript of the conversation I am having.

Here is what it looks like: http://img809.images...capturezpm.jpg/

It has an internet explorer "E" in the top tab - whats that all about?

Did you try using Windows' "System Restore" to roll Windows back to a previous state when your computer was functioning correctly?

Appreciate the shortcut but I dont want a work around and instead wish to understand the problem. Besides, I have too much to lose for a system restore.

Windows' System Restore does not mess with your personal files.

From the above Windows 7 link:

System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.

Sometimes, the installation of a program or a driver can cause an unexpected change to your computer or cause Windows to behave unpredictably. Usually, uninstalling the program or driver corrects the problem. If uninstalling doesn't fix the problem, you can try restoring your computer's system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly.

System Restore uses a feature called system protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses. You can also create restore points manually.

"Knock yourself out" meaning 'have fun', 'more power to you', and 'best of luck', in your attempt to "understand why the problem exists". :)
