    When I try to open a .doc file I get the message: This file does not have a
    program associated with it for perfofrming this action. Create an association
    in the Set Associatiion Control Panel.
    How can I solve this Problem?

    You didn't state your Windows version, so the wording may be slightly
    different. This is for XP.

    You need Word, or a Word Viewer to open a doc file.

    Save the attachment to your HDD. Right click on it and Open With | Choose
    Program. Find and choose a program that works and then check the box:
    Always use this program to open this kind of file. This should enable you
    to open these attachments in the future.
