Hi everybody.

I am new to this community and have a problem.

This is what happened:-

1) I sent an e-mail from home to work with a word attachment containing notes for a meeting.

2) I opened the attachment at work and saved it to my own folder in my individual drive.

3) At the same time (and possibly with the e-mail still open) I created a new e-mail and pasted some productivity figures from an excel file in to the new

4) I sent the e-mail showing the productivity figures to my team and four managers which I do on a daily basis.

5) A manager asks to speak to me about the attachment to the e-mail I sent showing the productivity figures and why I did it. I explain I have no idea how it happened and that is was a mistake.

6) After looking at the e-mail in my sent items I see that the file type has changed from a 2003 word document (.doc) to some kind of message format.
There are two of these messages attached and not just one word document format which is the one I created at home.

So my questions for you are:-

How did the file get converted from word to message? Did the software used by my employer do this when I saved it to my own drive?


How did these new formatted documents get attached to the new e-mail I created?

Any ideas?

Thanks for your time.
