I was asked about how attachments are handled on Exchange Server by my boss. I told him that when a user attaches a file to an email, that attachment will always be included on all emails that was sent by UserA. When UserB forwards that message over to UserC, the attachment is kept within the forwarded mail from sender UserA. My boss said he thinks that the attachment is kept on UserA when UserC receives from UserB.

    In general, attachments are converted into mime format & then transferred during the smtp connection as part of the data transmission. However, what was your reaction after hearing your boss's reply.

    If user A is the originator of the message, then yes, the attachment stays on the email that he has sent.  The attachment will always be a part of the email when forwarding a message. It is when you reply that the attachment is striped from the message, unless, you re-attach it to the message again, but, what is the point in that, unless you made changes to it and are sending it back to the originator of the message.
