Hostgator - Email Problem

I opened a shared account with Hostgator based on all the great reviews I had read on this forum.

The immediate problem I am having is the blocking of emails that I forward because HG routinely blocks any emails with eml attachments. So even the most innocuous emails that I forward are being blocked.

Is there any way around this problem? I contacted support at HG and they sent me a form response to zip all eml files. I can't believe that others using HG have not confronted this problem previously and would appreciate any way around this problem.

Thanks

If you're 'forwarding' the message, I know in Thunderbird you can set it to send 'Inline' instead of EML.
It use to be Tools > Options > Composition > and change Forward Messages to Inline.

I don't know a resolution to receiving them in EML though, and I'm not sure if that works in Thunderbird anymore... need to Google around or try it.

First try this file which they send you if you dont get solution i would suggest to switch for any other good host.

Are there other problems with file types that are blocked by HG? Or is it just .eml?
