OUTLOOK-reading attachments from other applications
Posted on 2000-02-17
Although I do not use OUTLOOK myself, I do send a lot of electronic material to folks who do.They tell me they cannot read attachments created in other applications.
When I receive an MS Word attachment I can either double-click on the attachment which opens an MS Word viewer OR I can open it from inside WordPerfect which automatically converts it. Eudora displays the directory where attachments are stored, predetermined by the user at installation. I have been looking at a copy of outlook and cannot find anything which indicates where incoming attachments are placed. Isn't there ANY way users of this program can view attachments that are NOT created in MS Word? It is an incredible hassle for us to have to convert everything into MS Word, OPEN in MS Word, adjust spacing, etc., SAVE as MSW a second time and THEN attach to an email, when I KNOW there has to be a way for these people to open attachments they receive from other applications!
If anyone knows how to do this, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it!
