    Subject line says it all. On many emails I send out from Macmail that contain pdf attachments the files I send show up in the body of my emails and is annoying on the receivers end as I use my Mac for my business.

    I know you can right click and have the body disappear on your end, but the receiver still gets it. I read that it is a 10.10 issue, so are there any fixes for this?

    This is not an OS X 10.10 issue; it is an email issue. The recipient's email client controls how your message is displayed. Unless your message is HTML mail, then you have very little control over your email appearance on the recipient's end.

    More of an OSX issue related to Yosemite as with Mavericks there was a command line fix to solve this issue.

    Email messages with inline attachments is a known, well-described format. I have been sending attachments via Apple Mail every day for years and there were only singular cases where it would mess up the email body. The problem is not Apple Mail but your client's email software. I hardly see how it is an 'OS X issue' if your client is using an inadequate email reader which is unable to parse correctly formatted mail. If there is no way to fix the email behaviour on your client's side, you might want to change from Apple Mail to some other program that sends attachments in a less advanced way.

    Mail always sends graphic files as inline attachments. It's a known issue since at least Lion. It shouldn't happen with PDFs though. But try Attachment Tamer, it was the only way for me to send real attachments when I was still using Mail.

    doesn't seem to be an issue. if you have a multiple page PDF, then it will not inline it, just the icon. single page will inline it. it does what is suppose to do.
