    Just to confirm, is the email attachment XXXXXXXx.jpg or is it a different extension?

How to scan documents to an email address


you should first right click on yoru destop and find "NEW" click on "make new folder", then type a name for the folder (anything you want). Now go to your scanner software and find the preferences and tell it to save scanned documents to your NEW folder. another option is to simply scan a document and when its done, click "file, save as" and save it to your new folder. When you are done scanning, open your email program and type in the email address to where you want to send the documents. when you are done typing the "subject" and a short note to whomever the mail is too, go to "insert" or "attachments" (varies depending on you email program). find the folder with your documents in it and hold down the "Cntrl"key and then click each file you wish to include. then click "ok" and all the files should now be attached to your email. BE AWARE, there may be a limit to how much data you can include in your email. If your email provider rejects your message due to file size being too large, simply send the files one at a time in multiple emails. There are also options out there (too numerous to list) that will allown you to send large files that are too big for your email program. I hope I haven't confused you. Good luck

If Windows is unable to open files of PPV file type, you may not have the appropriate program installed or, you may have file extension related windows registry errors. To help, we strongly recommend you to run this (new version 2010).

Have rec'd email with a jpg file attached How can I open it


JPG, JPEG, are standard picture files. By default windows XP should be able to open them. But, sometimes Email programs block those files (attachments) because of infection potential. Check your mail security settings, specifically, look for a setting that says "block potentially harmful attachments" and uncheck it. then reopen your mail client program.

Nero Photosnap Viewer Suddenly stopped working.


Let's say you cannot open JPG pics. This is what you have to do. 1) In explorer (My Computer), click Tools > Folder Options. 2) In the dialog box, click 'File Types' tab. 3) Scroll down until you see the JPG extension. 4) Select it and click 'Change' button below. 5) Select a program you want to use to open JPG files. (Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is the default program: You can select it.) 6) Click OK button. 7) If you have trouble opening other graphic types (BMP, GIF, PNG etc.) look for those extensions and repeat steps 4 to 6. 8) Click 'OK' button to close Folder Options dialog.

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.
