This is where my lack of tech knowledge complicates things. From what
you've written, I'm using webmail. The email just comes in as Gmail,
through my ISP, which is Time Warner's "Roadrunner", and Internet Explorer
8, Windows XP Pro with SP3. In the past I've used each of the email clients
you mention (Outlook Express, MS Outlook itself, Thunderbird), but I'm not
using any of them now.
Is there a way I can check the Sent folder directly from Gmail's web server
itself? Do you have any thoughts about the apparent stripping of
attachments (and evidences of attachments) from Sent mails?
