    I am guessing on of two things. 1)you are using Outlook express or 2) you are using Web mail.

    Outlook express--> This program installs by default to not attachments to be opened. Solution: Click on Tools the Options. Go to the Security Tab. Look for the option that says "Do not allow attachments ... blah blah blah" and remove the check mark. Click OK to save and now you can open all your attachments.

    Webmail--> For some reason on some wemail services you can not open attachments directly from your mail. You will get an error that says the file could not be found. Solution: Save the attachments to your hard drive then open them.

    -Del
