Bug in Office 365: multiple dot in attachment filename not show in Outlook

leave a comment »

Please note that last week I found a bug in Office 365 Exchange Online. File name with multiple dot like this: document.with.multipledot.docx will not show both in MS Outlook or Webmail.

A user call me that they could not access the attachment in Outlook but she could see the attachment in her blackberry device.

I ask her to save the attachment in Blackberry and try to save/rename it with filename like this: document_with_multipledot.docx

and then resend back. the result is the attachment can show in MS Outlook and Webmail.
