Attachments placed in message body in Outlook 2007

Find out why attachments may be placed in the body of an email as opposed to under the subject line in Outlook 2007.

I've upgraded to SBS 2003 with Exchange Server 2003, with Vista clients on Microsoft Outlook 2007. I've noticed that if I put an attachment in an email, it is placed in the body of the message, and not in the extra field under the subject line. Is this a typical Exchange feature?
This behavior is controlled by the email message format. When the message format is set to Rich Text, the attachments appear to the sender within the message body. If HTML is chosen, the attachments appear in the Attachments field at the top of the message. This can be changed for each email message from within the message window, or done globally in the Outlook 2007 options.
