pdf attachments arriving as .aspx


  • I have a user who's pdf attachments are arriving as .aspx files.  We have tested it internally and externally and it is happening consistently.We're using outlook 2016 with office 365 hosted exchange.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

  • Can you test below scenario and let us know the outcome

    Close Outlook and then use OWA. Try to send a pdf attachment from your mailbox to the affected user's mailbox and see if you are seeing the attachment as aspx or not.

    This can be due to exchange transport rule or may be due to modern attachment feature sender might be using.  If you could share us the image how sender is sending the email. An image with compose window along with attachment would give us idea where the issue lies.

  • Absolutely, The user is out until next week. Once she returns I will try that and update this post.

  • Hi,

    How is everything going? Have you got an opportunity to test within OWA? We'd appreciate it if you could let us know the result at your most convenient time.
