What kind of attachment you are trying to open sir? For example, If the attchment is a PDF file and you do not have Acrobat Reader installed in your computer, then you get that option. Please let me know the kind of attchment so that i can guide you properly.

Thanks

Problem opening some attachments


You need to tell Windows what program you want to use when opening the file since you don't have any program installed that knows this file.

Do you know what kind of file it is? If not, you need to find this out.
Usually you get powerpoint or pdf files in your mail. To read these you need Adobe Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer.

Short, You need to install a program that can handle the files you get in your mail. What program depends on the file.

To know what kind of file it is you have to se what "extension" it have (the three letters after the dot). Normaly you don't see this, but to be able to see it open Explorer and do go through the following:

  1. select Start -> Settings -> Control Panels -> Folder Options
  2. select the View tab
  3. check "show hidden files and folders"
  4. Uncheck "hide file extensions for known file types"
  5. Click OK to finish
Now, save the file on your desk and check the last letters of the file. If it ends with .pdg it's a pdf-file, if it ends with ppt it's a power point file.

If it ends with something else, it needs a different program. To know which, just ask again :)

Can't open .pdf file email attachments from Windows Mail (Vista)


Send yourself another known working PDF attachment and see if the same thing happens. If it does, post back. If not, then it most likely means there's either a naming issue with the problem PDF, or it is just corrupt enough to give you troubles when opening from email.

I'm unable to open .eml attachment in Windows Vista.


Here's some info: E-mail message saved by Microsoft Outlook or other e-mail program; may also contain an e-mail attachment, or file sent with the message. Note: If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
  3. Click the File Types tab.
  4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
  5. Click Open, then click Edit.
  6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
  7. Click OK twice, then close the window.
EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files; changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.
Hope this helps.
