Tried the following experiment:
In Finder, created a "New Folder" on the desktop. It mattered not whether there was anything in the folder. Then attached it to a "New Message" and mailed it (to my wife's Windows computer). Had her "Forward" it back to me. The file was now zipped, and I opened it. The folder may have been empty or otherwise, but not only the contents of the folder were shown, but scrolling to the left, all the files on my computer were shown too! However, all she got was the folder and its contents. Apparently Mail carries the 'path' to the folder along with the message, and although wife could not see anything other than the folder itself (and its contents), her forward back to me showed the whole 'path.' How is that possible?
