    I've read all the advices in 2007 - but still no joy ! !
    DaveA for example , (1.9.2007) suggests highlighting the extention - but the incoming attachment which I am trying to open has no extention. I know it is a "safe" attachment because it comes from my brother.
    Why oh why is everything so complicated ? ? We never had these headaches when sending messages by post ! ! !

    Thank you Joeten
    The problem is that I don't know the programs. I have an incoming attachment from my brother in USA labelled " Microsoft Office Powerpoint 97-2007 Presentation ". But this is double Dutch to me ! !

    I also sent an attached picture to a friend ( image 173_edited -3jpg - 2.01 MB ) but it also perished !

    It was so much easier usending things by post ! !
