I have recent issues regarding Bad outgoing attachments Office 365 in Thunderbird. I always sent correct attachments with Thunderbird to mail client like Lotus Notes, or IBM Notes. Recently some workmates moved to Office 365 and, when I send them some attachments like pictures, they visualize badly because the original attachment arrives slightly bigger in size respect.
To the original: in some points of the original file is inserted in the byte ‘0xD’. If the same file is sent to Office 365 from Gmail, the attachment arrives identical. Reading some forums I tried to change some points of the Configuration Editor but no result is founded. Bad outgoing attachments Office 365 in Thunderbird.
