opening e-mail attachments

  Yimbo 01:20 17 Dec 2005

I've sent a few friends a short powerpoint Christmas card (279KB) - but one lady tells me she cannot open the attachment in her inbox. I think it's Outlook Express she has - but I'm not sure. So perhaps it's a long shot, with so little to go on - but can anyone give me pointers for her as to how to open the attachment? Thanks!

She'll need the PowerPoint viewer (probably doesn't have powerpoint on her system).

Thanks - I never thought of that. I don't suppose there's any other way to get this attachment open - is there?

Not if that's the problem.

PS - the powerpoint viewer is a free download.

Just also check that she's not got the security option on in OE that prevents attachments being opened - just in case!
