How can I downloaad my attachments into microsoft word.

Jackie, This link will show exactly how to enable your cookies in Firefox. Cookies are a technique for your computer to remember pages you visited and setting that are enabled.

To download attachments you can click on Tools>>Downloads.or if you are downloading an image you can right click and select Save as. I would recommend you save to your desktop. The default download location is C:\Users\Steve\Downloads. I hope this helps

I have an email sent to me from my cousin with 4 men singing amazing grace in the coliseum in rome. i am dumb trying to download on a cd. it is a very beautiful song sung by these 4 guys. can you help me....

If you receive the movie like an attachement in your mail, save it on your computer in a location where you can find it easy and after that burn on a cd with nero or another burning cd software. If you receive just a link for this movie in your mail then you do few steps to download movie. 1-install mozilla firefox, at least mozilla 3.6 2-open google an search for "download helper" and install, this it's an add-on for mozilla only 3-after you install download helper, open movie in mozilla and go to tools/download helper and from the menu go to multimedia elements and select the movie from there in resolution you want. That's all! Good luck!

How do I open a Word 97 format (doc) on my Mac?

Haven't used Mac in a while but I believe you have to
1) Save the attachments to your hard drive or desktop.
2) Start the TextEdit or AppleWorks application
3) (If Appleworks) Start the Word Processor app
4) Try "File-Open" and locate the file(s) you wish to open
