Hi, bpbbush,

Because Powerpoint is part of the Office package, you would think that you would have to purchase Microsoft Office to view .pps files. This is not so. You can download the free PowerPoint viewer from here:

http://www.download.com/PowerPoint-Viewer-2007/3000-18483_4-10742145.html

Install that and reboot.
Then open the email again and it will automatically open with Powerpoint Viewer. Or it will ask you what program you want to open it with, and you click the PowerPoint Viewer .exe icon, and tick the 'Always open with this Program?' box.

Good Luck and Season's Greetings to you!

You probably do not have a Power Point viewer available; you can download it here:

Email programme.How to create an association in default control panel


You don't create one in the control panel, the profile you set up here is only to do with Microsoft outlook.

When you install a mail program such as thunderbird, it will ask you if it should be the default mail program, say YES and it will change the file type associated with mail to point to this program.

Thunderbird is here

Says this file does not have a program associated with it


Not familiar with software but either browse for programs and once you have found the master program then use that or open the program you created the file in and then open the file from the program.

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.

E-Mail Attachment


What's the file extension? That's the key.

Like:

homer.jpg
homer.swf
homer.doc

Each one corresponds to the appropriate program.
