    set associations for an attachment

    I keep getting a message
    Set associations for this file

    It was a simple .jpg sent as an attachment in an email from a friend.

    It says to Set Association in the Control Panel

    I can't find a Set Association module.

    please and thankyou.

    Save your attachment to folder of your choice. Open it on Microsoft Power
    Point or Office Excel, or notepad.

    Associations can be set in the Default Programs applet,
    which you can access either from the Start menu or via the
    Control Panel. It is very strange, though, that .jpg doesn't
    already have its association set. Can you save the attachment
    and then open it outside of Windows Mail?

    We sure need all the help that we can get in this newsgroup.

    But: ---------------------

    Please, t-4-2, unless you are CERTAIN, that your advice is correct, then
    please refrain from Guessing.

    ..jpg files are not opened by default, in any of the applications that you
    are advising, above.

    Hello Bill,

    Double check in Default Programs in the Control Panel to make sure that "Windows Photo Gallery" has all of it's default associations (ex: .jpg, etc...) set to it. This tutorial will show you how to if needed.

    Default Programs - Program Default Associations

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Re: set associations for an attachment

    Hi Gary
    I have the problem with .jpg too. Have set up file assoc. etc but will not
    open an attatchment in windows mail unless I save it first to say My Docs.
    Surely there is a way around this. I have to open .jpg files constantly all
    day, I don't want to have to save it every time I want to read/print it out.

    Hi Kessa,

    If you have already double checked in Default Programs - Program Default Associations in the Control Panel to make sure that "Windows Photo Gallery" has all of it's default associations (ex: .jpg, etc...) set to it, then you might check these settings in Windows Mail.

    1. Click on Tools and Options.
    2. Click on the Security tab.
    3. Uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved....."
    4. Uncheck "Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail.".
    5. Click OK.


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
