Unable to open files in e-mails

  taffjones 11:25 09 Sep 2009

Hi All. I have a Vista PC (running IE 8) and am unable to open PDF or JPEG files in e-mails. I use Orange e-mail. When double clicking on the attachment it comes up with the option to Open or Save but when I click either nothing happens.
Hope somebody can help me out on this?
Many Thanks

Are you using Windows Mail on your pc to collect your email?
Or are you using IE8 and Orange Webmail?

are you sure your security settings ( Mail tools) are set to allow opening attachments

You could always save to a folder ( creat one ) and try that route

I use IE8 to access my Orange e-mail account. Does this mean that I have to adjust my security settings on my e-mail account or in IE8?
I'm not sure which one sharpamat was referring to?

Any help would be appreciated.

I tried using a laptop to access the same e-mail account and that had no problem in opening e-mails from the same account. It says to me that the computer itself is having problems. It has been REALLY slow of late so I might have to carry out a bit of house keeping on the desktop to see if that cures it.
Many thanks to all for the replies.
