CAD Attachments to emails is not working

I have been using Hotmail and Live com for many many years and have never had issues adding attachments of any type. I am now not able to add my CAD files for transfer to others with my Live.com account. I have been able to send pictures, PDF files and WORD documents.  It continues to tell me that "not a photos, unable to attach document inline". I'm not using the "inline" attachment options just the same "add an attachment" selection I have been using for years.

I am not a new user and very experienced with computers, this is an hotmail issue and I will need to change services if this continues.

Also, I am able to receive the same file, download and open without any issue.

FYI, I was able to attach the same document using a primitive AOL system.

Who can help?

Still having the issues myself and Microsoft doesn't seem to care. Only solution I have is to make my .dwg files .ZIP files so I can send. I haven't had this problem with any other file type only .dwg files.
