Apple Mail renames the extension of attachments

I am using Mac OS 10.5.2 and have a problem when sending Office documents to a Windows user: all the documents extensions are renamed by Apple Mail.


For example, I attach a ".XLS" and, once the mail arrives into the Outlook mailbox, there are two attachments: one empty ".TXT" file and the document but with the extension ".XLSS".


The document can be opened normally when renamed as ".XLS".


What's wrong with Apple Mail???


It does it also for ".PDF" which arrive as ".PDFF"...
