      I too have the "attachment.php" problem, using IE 6 and have not had the problem ever (I last time downloaded something ~ 2 weeks ago).

            Thanks Markos. But in the spirit of "trust, but verify", a test of the PBEM download produced the same problem, a file named "attachment.php". However, knowing Apolyton had taken action, I decide to clean the dreck out of my browser, and that did solve the problem. So.....for those still experiencing the "file name problem" (which, nod to Zoidberg, is probably an IE-only issue), here's how to solve it:

            1) Tools, Internet Options opens the configuration box.

            2) Click the "Clear History" button and then "OK".

            3) Close the browser, open up and try to download a file. If the problem persists, repeat Step #1.

            4) Now click the "Delete Cookies" and "Delete Files" buttons and then "OK".

            5) Close the browser, reopen, login to Apolyton, and you'll have no problem.

            (NOTE: I did all three of those at once and that solved the problem, but I think only one of the buttons is actually necessary.....but I'm not sure which!)

                I'd first like to thank MarkG for solving the issue.
