    A very common problem with working with attachments and saving them (and downloads, too) is that it gets saved, but not where you thought it would go.

    First, are you using Vista? It takes some getting used to as the old places aren't the same.
    Are you using a program besides Internet Explorer such as Outlook or Outlook Express or Thunderbird to save them?

Make sure first of all the box that says "close this dialouge box one the download is complete" is not checked then if run does not works that means the particular application that supports the attachment that you are trying to view is not installed on the system, Secondly you can note down the path where the particular attachment is getting saved and then you can try to view it from there.

How can I downloaad my attachments into microsoft word.


Jackie, This link will show exactly how to enable your cookies in Firefox. Cookies are a technique for your computer to remember pages you visited and setting that are enabled.

To download attachments you can click on Tools>>Downloads.or if you are downloading an image you can right click and select Save as. I would recommend you save to your desktop. The default download location is C:\Users\Steve\Downloads. I hope this helps

If you are sure that the Email attachment is from a reliable source and then content is potentially safe you can try to download the images to your computer and save it in a folder.

After you have saved the pictures, open the folder containing those picture files and try to open it with Internet explorer.

If it is not ready to open with Internet explorer then you should not try to open it with any other program. There are chances that either the file is corrupted or it contains a Virus or other harmful stuffs.

Some attachments wont open goes to other email program or asks if you want to save, if you save you still cant open


You need to be more specific as to what type of attachment you're having problems with.
Depending on the attachment, you may need to buy or somehow get the program that opens that type of file. Example: You have a brand new PC/laptop, with nothing on it, except the Operating System. Let's say you had a free sampler of MS Office or what have you, but the trial period expired on it. That's the same as having nothing at all.
Next, you go to your email and find an MS Word attachment. You can save the file, but you still need MSOffice to open the document.
There are other more common attachments, that you can open with free "readers" or "viewers" for them. An example is a .PDF file, that Acrobat Reader can open. If you don't have this software installed on your PC, the web site will usually prompt you to go to the manufacturer's web site, where you can download it for free.
Most of these utilites get installed and become part of your browser or email program, and are called "plugins".
Depending on your Operating System, you need to go to either microsoft.com, apple.com, etc, and do a search on "plugins" for your browser.
There's a free, open source program called Open Office, from www.sun.com, that is compatible with MSOffice. If you download and install it, then you will be able to open all the different file formats, like presentations, text documents, databases, etc. However, you have to be careful when you create new files. You have to save them in the MSOffice file format, for others to be able to access them. This is because the default file format is its own, rather than MSOffice's.
If you don't, you'll create for your recipients the same dilemma you're having right now!
Good luck!

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.

Opening downloads on emails


all you need to know is the file extension of the file you downloaded. there are some common file extensions when attaching to the email . pdf , doc, if pictures the JPG,PNG, BMP, and many more. however if u have an office application program (Microsoft office,open office) all office files will be opened but if the file extension is PDF you must download and install the PDF reader. you can download it here http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
Take note! Any other files which you don't whose the sender and the extension files is not on office application program not pdf or picture files maybe can harm your system so be sure to know the files.
