If all you are wanting to do is read or print the email attachments, and they have been written using Word 2003 or Excel 2003, you can go to Microsoft.com and download Word Viewer 2003 and Excel Viewer 2003. These two viewers will allow you to read or print either Word or Excel documents as long as the original composer used Word 2003 or Excel 2003, or some earlier version such as 2000 or XP. To the best of my knowledge, Microsoft has not released a viewer for any of its 2007 programs yet.

However, if you are wanting to compose new documents, or edit the attached documents, you will need to have a copy of the program in question.

There is also one other possibility. You can go to openoffice.org and download a free copy of Open Office. I am not sure if the Open Office Suite is 100% compatible with the Microsoft Office products, but it should be close enough to get you by.

One other thing, if you are receiving .pdf documents, you can go to Adobe.com and download the latest version of Adobe Reader. This is also a free download and will allow you to open, view and print the .pdf documents but, again, in order to edit them you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat (not free) or some other compatible program such as Open Office (again there may be some slight compatibility issues to deal with).

Hope that helps - Graye

I cannot open an email attachment on microsoft office 2007. what seems to be the problem?


What type of Attachment is it?? If its a .zip, .rar (compressed) folder you may need a software to open this attachment for you. If it is a .Pdf file you will also need a software to open this type of document. I would recommend Peazip (google Peazip and download/Install) to open compressed files from E mail attachments and extract them to a format Microsoft Office will open (assuming they contain files for MS office). For .pdf files I would use Acrobat Reader (google and download/install) Or Foxit Reader (google and download/install). I hope this helps you get what you need. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

Close Excel first and check out if Outlook or Outlook Express/Windows Mail is your mail program for Office.
Start>Settings>Control Panel....Internet options (Program Tab)

I'm trying to open an excel file from an email attachment. It won't open.


Your e-mail client is configured to disable features that can be harmful to your computer. I suggest you not try to open the file, but download it to your computer and then open it.

I am not able to open any attached file in the incoming mail showing error like documents is damaged. But I can open that in direct mail server please help


If you are unable to open any attached file in your incoming mail and are using Microsoft Office 2007, run registry editor (regedit.exe) and scroll to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Copy the contents of the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" key and paste it in the Windows Explorer to open the OutlookSecureTempFolder. Delete all files in this folder and then run Outlook.

This location can not be browsed to and can only be found from the registry as it is different for all users. e.g. for myself it is as follows:

D:\Users\keekus\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\R34DKK8O\

For earlier versions of Microsoft Office, you may find the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" in these locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security

or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10\Outlook\Security

This may have happened if you use some desktop clean up utillity.

To work around this problem, you have to provide the original installation source files.

For example, use one of the following procedures when you receive the error message:
• Insert the original Office 2003 program CD that you used to install Office 2003, and then click OK.

• Click Browse, locate the Office 2003 program installation folder on the network, and then click OK.
