I can sign in to Hotmail, but I can't open any of the messages


Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.


If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.


You may need new software installed on your computer IE: adobe . direct x , zip for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.


Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client.


Incompatible File Format


Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.


Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.


Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.


Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.


Blocked Attachments


Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.

This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.


Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.


While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.


Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.


Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.

Forward Workaround


While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.


Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead.


Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.


Compression Workaround


Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.


Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.

Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.


Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.


Hope this helps

I CAN SCAN A PHOTO BUT WHEN I TRY TO SEND SAME BY EMAIL AM TOLD THERE IS NOT ONE. ASKED TO GO TO USER DEFAULTS AND SET ONE UP. AM NOVICE AT COMPUTERS. WHERE IS MY USERS MANUAL PLEASE HAVE BRAND NEW...


Should be in start / programs / acer

I would use either hotmail/live mail with Internet explorer to send photos, or googlemail and chrome.
If you use this combination, it will automatically resize your photos for email (hotmail with chrome/firefox or googlemail with IE wont work)

Restart the computer, and press the F8 key a couple of times and Boot into safe mode with networking . Login as administrator .

When i try to log in to hotmail it says internet cannot display


Download Firefox. It is a browser and much better than IE.

It will work 100% I can assure you. Since IE (Internet Explorer) is used by a large number of people, most malware is built for it to infect maximum number of people.

Hi I'm desperate because I dont know how my password for my email (hotmail) got changed, and when I reseted it, I lost all my emails. They where very important emails. My inbox is on "0" again....


You might not be looking at your inbox. Particularly with Windows Live Hotmail's new interface, it's easy to overlook which mail folder you might have selected. If you've accidentally clicked on a folder that has nothing it, like "Drafts", it might appear that your inbox is empty. Before panicking, click on the "Inbox" icon on the left to make sure you're looking where you think you are. This also clears "full message view" which can obscure the list of messages in your inbox.
You've selected a display filter. Next to the "Sort by" item in the Windows Live Hotmail column header is a small icon that allows you to "Show only messages..." that meet a criteria. For example you could elect to show only messages that have an attachment. If there are none, then your inbox will appear empty. Once again, clicking on the inbox icon to the left will clear the filter and show you all messages in your inbox.
It just disappeared for reasons unknown. I hate to even have to include this as a possibility, but as best I can tell it happens. Recently it seemed to occur as accounts were switched from the old style MSN Hotmail to the new Windows Live Hotmail, but that should be over by now. Nonetheless, I've not been able to determine a common cause or reason. It just happens
You can try to contact customer support. The quickest route I found was this link: https://support.live.com/eform.aspx, and then click on Windows Live Hotmail. You can then submit a support request.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

If you are using a webbased email program you might have your popup blocker enabled. This can be controled by your web browser (IE, Firefox) and/or a toolbar (google, yahoo).
