What are you using outlook express/ outlook/ etc


  Technotiger 15:00 09 Jan 2008

Yes, you can usually open them as you say. Or, click on the Paper-clip icon in top right of email, perhaps, and then on Open or Save attachment.

It`s the Tesco email, Outlook express I think
Thanks mfletch

Also Do you use AVG Antivirus because this add;s a attachment

  RussB74 15:05 09 Jan 2008

Yes I do use AVG Antivirus and Vista Premium

That is why you have a attachment in your mail,

It;s the Email scanner,

is what mfletch suggests, the AVG, "attachment", then read this;

click here

WHihc is something I put together a while ago.

If that's not the problem, and you do have a real, different, attachment, tell us what tyype it is?
Maybe you don't have the appropriate softwrae to open it?

What I have is a real attachment sent to me in binary, which I could not open.
But I`m pleased to say I have recieved the information by email and everything is fine now.
Thanks very much for all your interest and help.
