Error sending mail with attachments.
When sending a new mail message with an attachment the following error occurs: 
File (attachment name) is not a view description file. 
After getting the error the message sends, but the message window stays open.


The error is seen when the client option "Open new view after send" is enabled.
The  setting is found in the GroupWise 32-bit Client under Tools | Options | Environment.
Disabling this option will make the error go away. 

This has been reported to development.
