Why do e-mail attachments download as an unreadable mass of characters - both on e-mails received and sent?


Your pst file might not be of the format that supports unicode data like below.

Your regional language might not recognise the encoding of the email you get.

---------------------------------------------

I left the above although it refers to something different thinking about it.

For some reason Firefox is showing you the attachment in the code format instead of what we are used to now.
Try to check your email in this website:
mail2web.com and tell me if it's any different.

Excel file problem


Two possibilities:
  1. You accidentally save it as an HTM or HTML file. It will still open in Excel if so. Open the file in Excel and do a Save As back to an XLS (Excel 97-2003 version file) or XLSX (Excel 2007 - 2013 version file).
  2. You associated XLS or XLSX files to be opened with CometBird. If so, right click on the file and choose "Open With," then go to the bottom of the choices and left-click on "Choose default program..." Then choose Excel and you should be all set. Windows will reassociate all your files to automatically open with Excel instead of CometBird.

When open attachments in outlook 03 just locks up then opens


Outlook has bad memory management, and this happens often. The only way to relieve this is to save the attachments to your computer harddrive first, and then open it, instead of opening it from the email directly.

Its a pain, but its the cost of using Microsoft products.

Sending attachments in Outlook 2003


Try saving the document to your local drive first, then send the file as an attachment. When the file is opened from your Outlook, it resides only as a temp file while you are viewing it, then to try to send that temp file, it causes issues with outlook. Save the file first, then send it, but don't try to send the file from the temp view whilst opening the file that is still in another e-mail
