Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
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 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.

When i open an attachment in my email i goto windows media center i need to goto the attachment i'm tring to veiw how do i get back to viewing the attachment ?


What type of attachment it is? Is it JPEG(image), or Word File or , Excel File? To open the file type you should select the proper application. You can try the following thing while opening your e-mail attachment. right click on the Attachment which you have download and select Open With. It'll show you the list of application through which you can view your attachment. In your case i thing Window Media player is selected by default that why when ever you try to open it keeps on opening in Media Player.
First try to know what type of mail attachment you are getting, If you have Word file then select Open with "Microsoft word", If any image then Select "windows picture and fax viewer".
If it is a .PDF file type then you should open it with Adobe Reader(IF you don't have Adobe reader then You need to download it from net to few it.
Similarly if it is ZIP. file then you must have Win ZIP software to open it.


I hope you understand what i mean to say and Hope it'll work for you. :))

I don't seem to be able to send photos by Kodak Easyshare e-mail even though I am on line and the address is correct.


Ditch Kodak Easyshare and just use your email program:
Attachment basics When you send photos in e-mail, the photos go along for the ride as attachments, just like any other file you add to an e-mail.
To attach a photo in Outlook:
  1. Click New to open a Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject boxes as usual and type any message you wish to accompany the photos.
  3. Click Insert File (the paperclip icon), locate your file through the Insert File box, click the file's name and then click the Insert button. If you wish to add multiple files from within the same folder, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking multiple files, then click the Insert button.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for any other files you wish to attach.
  5. Click Send.
In Outlook Express:
  1. Click Create Mail to open a New Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button, locate the file in the Insert Attachment box and click Attach. Use Ctrl-click to select multiple files.
  4. Click Send.
In Netscape Mail:
  1. Click New Message to open the Compose window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines, and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button or, in Netscape 6, click in the empty Attachments box.
  4. Select your file in the Enter Files To Attach dialog and click Open.
  5. To attach multiple files, repeat Steps 3 and 4.
  6. Click Send.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

I keep getting amessage "OE removed access to the following attachments in your mail". How can I fix this wo my attachments go through? Thank You


f you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”

To check your e-mail security settings:

1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.

You should now be able to open attachments.

Note: If you are using Outlook 2003 to read your mail, you may not be able to open attachments with extensions (.exe, .vbs , etc.) that the program considers unsafe. To get around this problem, ask the attachment’s sender to use a compression program, such as WinZip, that alters the file’s extension to something considered safer (.zip). More information about this feature can be found at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;829982 .
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
