Microsoft Outlook can't open this item

I have a user in HR that e-mails out a letter to the office of about 200 ppl. She like to throw on pretty little attachments like word and power point to make the letter noticable and attaches them like a picture. While most people can get and read the messages...a few (so far 2 total) get the dialogue box 'Microsoft can't open this item' as soon as they try to open it. Its being sent from a 2K box woth Office 2k3 and the two that cant open it, no matter how many times its sent, are 2K boxes with Office 2k and 2k3. Im somewhat befuddled.

Hi Tennessee_Pride,
> 'Microsoft can't open this item' as soon as they try to open it

When they try to open the email message or try to open attachment ?

Is the versions of their outlook different from the senders and others who get it fine ?

I am not sure why you accepted my comment here.. Not sure how it cud have solved your issue
