Windows 7: Email from another computer using Thunderbird

Email from another computer using Thunderbird

My setup: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Gmail.
Messages from another computer using Thunderbird are received
as attachments(I don't know why). First I have to download them,
which is a royal pain. No matter what I use to read them I get the
html looking stuff. Gmail is working fine as long as the messages
are not from Thunderbird. Everything else on my puter seems to
be working ok.
Thanks for any help.

It's not clear what you you mean someone else sending you an e-mail using TBird causes this ...or are you sending something to yourself from another PC ? ?

Phenix, On many email programs you have the options of sending email HTML, RichText or plain text. It looks like the person sending you the email has selected HTML which includes a lot of code that will look wierd to a plain text email program.

Thanks Guys,
Problem is solved. In the many settings of Thunderbird I had attachments
checked instead of inline.
