We have just had Outlook 2010 installed but all other office apps are office 2003.

When opening up an email with an attachment it say there isn't a previewer installed for it.

Is there one available or are we required to have the whole 2010 office suite installed?

I would think it would need to be a supported attachment type. Outlook would need a supported viewer. 2003 may not work with the attacment preview

I checked and the viewer is already enabled, I think it may be due to us using Office 2003 applications and only 2010 version of outlook

It does seem 2003 apps are not supported with the 2010 previewer
