DO NOT change the type of extension of a file, because you will
never be able to open that file. To save an attachment, click File,
Save Attachments. At the bottom of the window that pops up is the
location where that file will be saved. You can change that location
by clicking the Browse button. Once the attachment is saved, for
example, in the Documents folder, navigate to that folder and
double-click on that PPS file. In order to open PPS files, you must
have either PowerPoint or the free PowerPoint viewer installed. If you
have neither, go here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
Once you have confirmed you can open that file outside of Windows Mail,
there is a fix for being to able to open it inside Widows Mail: http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html
