Outlook Express Fails to display all messages cont

  J. I. 15:18 31 May 2005

Computer xp home, service packs 1&2, with latest edition of Outlook Express. My problem, when I open my attachments the ones with animated images fail to open or display contents. When I click on open a window appears. The blue window bar reads C:\Documents and settings\Local settings\Temp int files\Content ie5\bf... The main message window reads. This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel. Can anyone explain the reason for this message and why things are the way they are. Your help appreciated

Hi, it looks as if you are still using Internet Explorer 5 - I would advise upgrade to IE 6.

in addition you probably need to update your Java runtime routines - have a look at this site.

You may already know this, but Java is needed on many sites in order to allow animated objects.

I have IE6 on Comp although I am using latest version of Maxthon 1.3.1 as my browser. Can Technotiger advice on best Javas to download.

Hi, I would advise the Java2 Runtime Environment download.

Have D/Loaded J2Se 1.4.2_08 SDK and JRE as rec by Joe R and saved to my docs. Each have a windows offline and a windows installation D/Load. Making four in total. Can you tell me Joe R if I install all four, or just two. The windows installations d/loads are quite small when compared to the windows offline d/loads. I do appreciate your help

Have installed the offline jre. Will check out with my next animated E/Mail. Another thought, my friend says it may have something to do with changing my Browser to Maxthon. When all is resolved will post result to this forum.
