Failure to open attachments

I sometimes receive e-mail attachments which, when I try to open them, cause the following message to appear: NEED PROGRAM.EXE TO OPEN THIS FILE.

I suspect it is because the attachments were written with Microsoft Word and I use Lotus SmartSuite Wordpro.

Does anyone know a way opening such attachments or, conversely, how I can acquire a copy of PROGRAM.EXE

Regards

Try installing the Word viewer click here

You might need to detach the attachment before trying to read it.
