Question about Internet & Communication Software

Kodakeasyshare nightmare I have numerous Estate files saved in Microsoft Word. When I try to open them Kodakeasyshare has nabbed the file and it is I guess what you call encrypted when Word opens, you can't read it. I have tried to change the properties of the files to open with Word, but don't know how to change the file manager itself.

Re: Kodakeasyshare nightmare

Well, this is one reason I tell users not to install most proprietary photo software.. you rarely need them to open an image or picture taken from the proprietary camera..

anyway, I take it that you have made sure that the extension on the file is a .doc extension, correct?

You can also right click > Open With > then associate the file back to Word, as long as the extension is .doc

Also, did you actually 'encrypt' the file? If so, then you may be out of luck on these files.

The file manager is the Operating System itself.. I doubt whether that is the problem.. if you still cannot open these, then the data is most likely corrupted by the Kodak software that tried to open it..

I need some help and assistance with Micorsoft Outlook 2010. everytime I open the program or click send or receive.. I encounter an error message "Your IMAP server wants to alert you the following:...

It means there is a corrupt email file somewhere that keeps wanting to tell you about it. I would first explore the folder and see if you can find the bad file. The other option is to back up what you want and delete the emails saved, then restore the ones you have backed up. If that doesn't work, I would consider reinstalling the problem email with Outlook.

How to open 2007 word document in 2003 word?

Hi there,

Two options.

One. Upgrade to 2007. A bit on the spendy side.

Two. All office products have the ability to Save their documents (etc.) in a format readable by previous versions.

I would ask your friend to open the file, save as a Word 2003 Document and resend the file. No expense, fast, easy.

Best regards

Outlook1.pst file disappeared when installing updated drivers for LogitechQuickCam. I think they are related as QuickCam has some kind of mail interface. Can I get my e mails back? Jim Moore

could be a corrupted mail file,

just track down the folder where the file is 'normally' found, c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook (XP)

or c:\users\user\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook (Vista, 7)

make a copy of the file just in case, note the location you save the backup.
. now go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

and run ScanPST.
navigate to the location where your PST is stored and click Start.

You have the option here to create a backup .bak file as well.
when this completes, you can try to open the PST file in Outlook again , via File > Open > Outlook Data File.

You can use this same method to scan .OST files that might be errored, or corrupted as well. OSTs are used with Exchange server accounts , also known as Offline STorage Files.

How do i read .dat files that i receive by email

If these files are forwarded email messages, you can try this trick: save the .dat file to your disk, rename it with an extension .eml instead of .dat and then try to double click it. OE should open it in a new window.

However, if the .dat files are something else, you have to know what they are... Might try saving them and opening in Notepad to see if they contain anything familiar.

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
