    We were told by multiple vendors that this didn't work.
    Basically, we ran into 4 vendor situations:

    1 - Vendor only accepts ADF attachments
    2 - Vendor only accepts plain text ADF body contents
    3 - Vendor can accept either or both safely
    4 - Vendor accepts either, but if both are provided it creates a duplicate

    You can't count on any vendors in this industry to make your life easy :)

    @craigh@craigh excellent points. I did not think about duplicate leads scenario. I like the toggle feature in the lead manager.
    Thank You!

    This tends to be the majority.
    If you wanted to start with one, start with it in the body of the email.

    Yes, and that is pretty much what you're going to see time and time again. Until a real force causes the change or disruption.
