This is part of an email that I got from a customer today.
I am using an iMac and I just saved several documents in MSWord.
When I tried to send them as attachments, some - but not all - of them
came out in MacBinary format. Why is that? Will I still be able to read
when I get to work tomorrow on a different computer??
And how can I prevent this from happening? I saved as MSWord.
I created all the files using Word and saved them all the same way. I use
a Mac with Word at my office, too, so I thought it would be easy to send
Word documents back and forth. I could not open the ones that said Mac
binary when I got to work. Luckily I had also sent them as plain text,
but I am hoping not to have to do that anymore.
Below are the attachments that were sent in the email.
