Opening MS Office files attached to mail

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by George Cuthbertson, Feb 27, 2008.

  1. I am having problems opening MS Office attachments in Windows Mail. When I
    click on them Mail goes into a Not Responding state. Other attachments open
    OK. I have looked at the file associations and they look fine. Double
    clicking saved files opens them with no problem. Can anyone suggest an action
    to fix this?

    You often have to install Outlook, preferably version 2003 or later, to be
    able to read such attachments. It comes with some of the versions of
    the Office software, but not with some of the cheaper versions.

    I already have Outlook installed but use Windows Mail for my email. Surely
    Windows Mail should be able to open attachments!?
