Outlook & zip files

A users has been sent a zip file to an outlook98 client but when he tries to open it he gets the following messages:
message cannot save attachement c:\temp
outlook cannot save the url - path does not exist

We have tried saving it to disk etc but getthe same messages.

How can we access these files?

You can't. The user who sent the message didn't attach it as a file, but as a shortcut. Ask sender to send again.

another colleague can open the zip file and see what is contained within it, but when he sends them onto the owner the same messages are being reported

Here's an option that may be worth the effort.  In WinZIp, select the file.  From the menu choose Actions, Make.Exe File.  Thsi is self extracting and will open the file on any users PC.  Good luck.
