    Are you saving attachments and then opening them from hard disk or you are trying to open them directly from mail?

Am confused regarding what to download for simple power point viewer use when receiving e-mail with "pps" attachments. Will appreciate recommendations.


Hi,

If you wish to view Power Point (.pps) attachments you receive in your e-mail, you need to download and install the Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 which you can download by clicking this link.

Also, please be careful while opening PowerPoint documents you receive in email because a lot of viruses are transmitted these days along with .pps documents. So, only open PowerPoint attchments from contacts whom you know.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

Windows mail and powerpoint viewer


From windows mail choose Options Then Security Tab. You can change some security behavior here for allowing viewing of attachements, however it will only work for certain file types. Others are prohibited regardless. IT's a measure Microsfot feels is protecting folks forcing them to save the file then open it. This allows Antivirus programs to fully scan the file before use. But it's fairly impractical.

If you get frustrated with WM, you might try Thunderbird from Mozilla.com Its free and far more flexible and robust than WM.

Opening pps messages


Hi nati662992,

pps files are Microsoft PowerPoint slideshows.

Because Powerpoint is part of the Microsoft 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!
