Mail script makes copy of attachment

Post

When i add an attachment to an email to a found set, FMP puts a copy of that attachment in the mail clients attachment folder (in this case Eudora). Because that file name already exists in that folder, the file name gets a sequential number appended to it. So the first recipient on the list gets a file named 'schedule.pdf'. The next recipient gets a file named 'schedule1.pdf', and so on.

Is there any way to prevent FMP from making a copy? The original attachment is in another pre-determined folder.

if i manually add an attachment to a group email in Eudora, it doesn't make a copy in the attachments folder.
