Unable To Open Email Attachments

I get this message everytime i try to open e-mail attachments: "this tab has been recovered. A problem with this web page caused internet explorer to close and reopen the tab" this appears for a few seconds and then the screen reverts back to my e-mail inbox. What i have tried: clear cache and delete cookies, enable every visit to page option, verify that active scripting and java applets etc. Are not blocked.

Tried using default settings. Nothing has helped!

I am running vista, ie-8 and using msn hotmail.

Recipients Cannot Read / Open Email Attachments

I am sending email with attachments using windows 7 and office 2007. The documents are saved in office 97-03 format. Some recipients receive files with the ending *. Dat which they cannot open. Others simply cannot see the attachments.

I have been using the same set-up on windows xp with no problems. Is there a simple solution here or something that i am overlooking?

Attachments To An Email

When composing an email i used to be able to click on the "attach" tab and a drop-down would appear and i could choose to attach a picture or document. I could choose one or the other and it would take me to my pictures or documents. I would select what i wanted to attach to the email and then download to the email. I am unable to do that now. If i choose the attachment tab now, it takes me to a series of questions, email address, pop3 server, etc. , Which i don't know how to answer. What has changed? Is there a new procedure for this function?

I am using windows vista.

Cannot Download Email Attachments

I have a new laptop with windows 7. When i try to download word or excel e-mail attachments, the file download box appears showing "getting file information" and then nothing else ever happens. I can download these same e-mail attachments from the same e-mails on 2 other computers running windows xp and on a mac running osx. I'm guessing this has something to with a security setting in either windows 7 or the ie8 that's on this laptop, but i've not been able to determine which one. I can download jpegs and power point files.

Problem With Jpegs As Email Attachments

I use a mac with snow leopard os. I also have an hp all in one printer. It is able to take the chip from my camera, and, when i open iphoto on the mac, it will import the images directly into iphoto. From there, i can use the photo browser in my mac email to grab pictures for inclusion in email i send out.

However, my partner, who uses windows 7 and ms outlook 2007 for email, no longer receives my jpgs as attachments, or as files whose names can be seen and which can be saved. Instead, they open in his email program (ms outlook 2007) as images (in-line pictures) which are disproportionate (flattened a bit) and which cannot be saved or identified in any way as to the file itself. Does anyone know if this is a windows 7 problem, or an ms outlook 2007 problem? And does anyone have a fix?

Creating File Associations For Email Attachments

To date i have been unable to locate a free download that will provide for file association with e.g .doc , pps and other email attachments. None of the options in the default programmes site have worked. The sender of the .doc attachment advises it was created with microsoft word using windows xp. Tried association with wordpad which came up as notepad and opened attachment which was not legible. There appear to be plenty of commercial offerings to solve the issue but are there any reliable free downloads?

Attachments Wont Open In Ie8

Vista home premium, att.net/yahoo email, norton internet security.pdfs and word docs open everywhere, including web sites all accessed through ie 8. However, on att.net my email attachments will not open or save (word, pdfs). Uninstalled norton and they still won't save or open so i reinstalled norton. All was fine until a week ago or so. If i use mozilla and access att.net attachments open just fine.

Specifically i open the email, click on the attachment, norton scans (maybe through yahoo), says no viruses so i hit download attachment box, file download box opens and asks if i want to save or open, click either one and file download box opens with no info in time remaining boxes, etc. , Box just sits there with the graphics running and nothing happening.

Live Mail Does Not Open .eml Attachments

My toshiba laptop came with windows 7 and windows live mail preloaded. I have been using both for a few months now, but just noticed my wlm does not open . Eml attachments. While checking this out, i found that . Eml does not show up in my "set associations" program, nor does wlm show up in my "set program default" program. In fact, wlm doesn't even show up in my "installed programs" function. Is this normal for a pre-installed program or how can i fix? If a reload of wlm is required, how do i avoid losing all my saved messages in my wlm.

Cannot Open .doc Attachments In Live Mail

Previously had vista ultimate, mail and office 2007 and had no problems opening .doc attachments from within mail. Have now installed windows 7 ultimate, office 2007 and have tried live mail and also mail but can't open .doc attachments in either as it comes up with "this file doesn't have a program associated with it". The same attachment works ok with windows live. Can save the attachments to the hard drive eg.documents and they will open ok. The default associations for .doc files is set for microsoft word. I don't have any problems with access, excel or publisher files as attachments.

Have several users we have just upgraded to windows 7 pro, all clean installs. Some are having issues with excel 2003 hanging up when trying to open spreadsheets. Myself, i keep having access 2010 hang when trying to open databases. My own personal computer at home, just bought a new sony vaio with win7 home and photoshop hangs when trying to open a picture to edit.

File Open Issue With Excel / Word 2007

I am using office 2007 on a windows 7 pc and i find that when opening excel and word files from the explorer window, that the relevant file always opens but sometimes a second excel or word window will open but without any document. So when this happens, i end up with two instances of word or excel - one with the relevant document and a second empty window.

I don't know the cause of this and it is sporadic.could it be due to a bug or a utility which is affecting the software? As far as i can tell, powerpoint and access don't suffer this problem.

This is an irritation rather than a problem but maybe someone can advise.

Cannot Open Or Save Excel / Word Files From Internet

Recently i have not been able to open or save any excel or word files from any website or yahoo e-mail. When i click on the file i get a pop-up asking to save or open and i choose one then i see the file progress, then then nothing. The pop-up closes and no file, opened or saved.

In the past i've been able to open and save both excel and word files but now i can't. I was on the phone for an hour with hp support and they were of no help. They had me delete my cookies disable add-ins and reset ie8, none of that helped. Any ideas? Is this a ms office issue or ie issue?

Ie8 Will Not Open Email

I am running windows xp, sp3 and ie 8 on 3 computers with avg antivirus. I have had zero problems until the other day. On one computer i.e 8 is not opening my yahoo or google e-mails. I can get to my inbox but when i click on the e-mail the computer responds "loading" and then times out. I have firefox and chrome browsers installed on this computer and can access my yahoo & google e-mails normally. I can also access my e-mails via ie8 normally on the other two computers.

I tried uninstalling ie8 and did manage to do this after uninstalling sp3. I then tried installing ie 7 but could still not access my e-mails. When i uninstalled ie 7 i was able to access my e-mails using ie6 (but it is very slow!). I reinstalled ie 8 and sp3 on the computer and still no success. I prefer ie8 to firefox and chrome and would welcome any suggestions to troubleshoot this problem.

Cannot Open Jpeg Files, Problem With Email Attachment

I have just started to use windows 7 and have encounter problems that is going to impact on my job as a teacher.

1 - i cannot open jpegs in win 7 - i can see them on the view but the error box tells me it can not open them - test question diagrams are usually sent as jpegs.

2 - i have some video clips as attachments in emails - i transferred them across to win 7 but i now can't take them off as win 7 doesn't recognize the file type so i can't even take the files off and reinstall xp while win 7 is being ironed out.

3 - gifs/animations no longer work in powerpoint in fact gifs or animation files are not working at all in win 7 - as i teach using powerpoint and the diagrams that are animated are used to explain concepts in physics and other sciences - this is a pain.

If anyone can solve this quickly with a patch or add on/or fill me in on what i 'm not doing right i will be relieved. If some one can fix no. 2 at least i can go back to xp.

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

There is also an option to right-click and select open from the context menu but still the selected email will not open. Any suggestions on why the search result will not open email items?

Outlook Express Files And Attachments

I have been using eudora since forever. I just got a new machine with windows 7 on it. I can't use eudora anymore so i have changed to outlook express on my xp machine. I have imported all my folders/mail/accounts and all is working good. However, i can't find my attachments - .jpg's etc. In eudora there was an attach folder and all the files stayed there until the message was deleted.

Do i have to save all the attachments as they come in (annoying) now? Also, how do i import all my messages/mail/accounts to the new machine with windows 7? I see where there is no outlook express on win7. Will i need to start from scratch and lose all my history?

Outlook 2007 Does Not Read .eml Files / Attachments

How do i get outlook 2007 to read . Eml files and attachments? I am a web developer working from home. A lot of my clients talk to me via chat programs like yahoo messenger and skype. Often times, they send mail messages from a end-users to me over yahoo or skype that are . Eml files. These files describe bugs or other errors that end-users experienced.

I can't understand why i can't read "eml" files in outlook 2007. Right now, windows 2007 wants to use windows live mail to open these files. Is there a third-party add-on that will give outlook 2007 this functionality?
