File types

  hvs 16:01 11 Jun 2003

Please could someone help me? I have a Nikon digital camera with installed software Fotostation easy. Downloading the photos, no problem but when I click on a photo to send via email it attaches itself all very well but the attachment cannot be opened. I get an error message" C/Windows Temporary Internet Files/Content IE5/etc.
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in My Computer by clicking etc". I have noticed as well that the files created by Fotostation show that it is in JPG format but it used to have an icon which is different to the one which appears now. I have used this program before and had no problem so I think some other downloaded program could have interfered with it. I have also uninstalled and then re-installed the software but nothing works. The only new software I have installed was for a Canon scanner. OPS WIN 98SE 2nd edition.
I am desperate!!!!!!

I always check after I have attached a file that it will open before sending the email off. All my family and friends to whom I sent these pics could not open the attachment. Will try what you suggested, have been making dinner and doing housework. Never ends!
As I explained in my question that once I have attached the file to the email I click on it and then click on "open " but it will not open then I get the message with the file types. I have also tried clicking on my computer, folder options but I do not have a clue as to which file type I should select! There are many of the same icons which appear on the list with different file ext.
